Flash Fiction Challenge #2


I revisited fantasy for my second story.  The theme came from a magazine call for “The resistance.”   While I doubt if my version of “the resistance” is the same as what they’re thinking, I wanted to try the story anyway.

So I was driving around after lunch, trying to figure out what to write.  Turned down this street and followed it.  Where I had to turn back, I looked back up at the street sign:

Robinwood.

And the opening to the story popped into my head.

Challenge Stories:

  • Story #1: Mystery, set in Hollywood 1940s, called Lost Starlet.
