On the Premises Short Story Contest: Straightforward

Posted by Sally Clark on Sunday, August 9, 2015
On the Premises Short Story Contest
 
Contest #26 began on June 13, 2014. Its premise is: STRAIGHTFORWARD
 
This contest’s premise is about technique, not content. Your story can be about almost anything you like*, but all of your story’s events must be presented in chronological order. In other words, time must move only forward in your story—NO FLASHBACKS ARE ALLOWED. (No “flash forwards,” either—meaning no glimpses of the future that return the story to the present.) Start at some point in time, take us “straight forward” through the story's events, and end when it's over.
 
Your challenge: Write a creative, compelling, well-crafted story between 1,000 and 5,000 words long that clearly uses the contest premise.
 
*The permanent rule of “No children’s fiction, no exploitative sex, and no over-the-top gross-out horror” still applies.
 
Deadline: 11:59 PM Eastern Time, Saturday, September 5, 2015.
