#LastLineFirst – A #FlashFiction Challenge: Week 13

last line firstOops! Nearly forgot to launch this week’s Last Line First! My excuse is that it’s the school holidays and, as usual, I’ve lost track of the days. Bad host. Bad, bad host! Sorry. Anyhoo …

Your last line prompt this week is from The Indescribable Girl by Voima Oy. I picked it because it has the potential to lead into both a cheery story and a not-so cheery story. What kind of day has your protagonist had that could make them start their tale with such a statement? Will the next word be ‘but’ or ‘because’ or something else entirely?

Happy Flashing!

Your last line prompt this week is from No Words by Paul Kohn. I picked it because opening a story with the idea that some things are ‘just indescribable’ is a bit of a challenge isn’t it?
