Last Line First

last line firstWelcome to Last Line First, a flash-fiction-writing challenge.

It works like this:

  • Every Monday, I post the last line of an existing story for you to use as a prompt.
  • You then have until midnight (BST) on Sunday to write and submit a ≤200 word flash-fiction that starts with the given last line.
  • To officially participate, you must submit your story by posting it as a comment to the challenge post.
  • You may tweak the last line in whatever way you see fit.
  • The story can be in any genre (except graphic horror or erotica) and does not need to reflect the source story in any way.
  • There will be no judging as such, but each week I’ll choose my favourite last line from the stories submitted. The author of the chosen last line will receive a Last Line First badge (pictured above) and see their last line used as a prompt in the future.
  • To keep things simple: by submitting your story, you’re agreeing to let me use its last line as a future prompt. Thanks!

You can find the latest challenge here and a list of my favourite last lines below.
