F3 Week 10: So Many Words, So Little Time


To commemorate the start of NaNoWriMo, the annual ‘drives-you-crazy-but-you-love-every-second-of-it’ writing project, the prompt this week will be ‘words’.

If you are not doing NaNo, stop by to check out our prompts. If they grab you, share a story with us.


If you are doing NaNo, and need a break from your 50,000, take your time out with us at F3. All we’ll ask of you here is 1,500 words max.


If you are doing NaNo, and adding F3 to your itinerary would push you into maximum overdrive, put our prompts on hold until December. Do stop by though on each deadline Thursday and post your current word count so we can all celebrate your progress. We are, after all, in this writing gig together.

Ready? Set? Go!


Prompt: Write a story that includes the following five words: Tunnel, Measure, Eyebrow, Corporation, and Cuff

Genre: Open

Word Count: 1,500 or less

Deadline: Thursday, November 5, 2015


Post your story on your blog or website and provide a link to it in the comment section of this prompt.

  1. I’m not doing Nano as such, this year – I’m going to spend this November editing the story I wrote last year. However, I’m sure I’ll need to come up for air now and again, so I’ll definitely check in on the flash fiction prompts!

    And I want to do this one as the last one BEFORE November…
