In 500 words or less, write a flash fiction story that starts with the sentence: "She picked up the knife." The challenge of flash fiction is to create a thought-provoking story within the tight word constraints of the writing form.
The story can be any genre as long as it is based on the picture. You can submit as many entries as you like but we'll only judge your most recent two entries based on posting date.
- One winner will receive $100.
