Hey, everyone – welcome back to Microcosms! 😀
You may or may not know this, but the 15th of January is National Hat Day. As you also may or may not know, I’m a huge fan of hats! As such, I thought it would be fun to pick some characters and locations that we associate with hats.
As usual, our contest will begin with three things: character, setting, and genre.
We spun, and our three elements are character: magician, setting: the Old West, and genre: sci-fi. Whoa.
Feel free to write a story using those or spin a new set of your own (tons to choose from this week). Be sure to include which three elements you’re using.
- religious figure
- police officer
- mariachi singer
- baseball player
- house of worship
- crime scene
- the Old West
- 1920s America
- 1920s Africa
- an opera house
- baseball field
- steam punk
Judging this week are last week’s winners, dazmb, Jessica Franken, and Voima Oy. 🙂
All submissions should be 100 words in length, give or take 10 words (90 – 110 words). You have until midnight, New York time to submit.
Flashdogs : Solstice : Dark: Volume II (currently available in the US, the UK, Australia, and other territories), or a similarly priced book of their choosing; alternatively, winners may elect to have the monetary equivalent donated to World Reader or another literacy-related charity.
