@ChuckWendig at Terrible Minds, occasionally offers a writing challenge. Here is this week’s: http://terribleminds.com/ramble/2013/02/22/flash-fiction-challenge-game-of-aspects-redux/
Foolishly, I accepted the challenge and grabbed the random elements. *sigh* I will try to write a story using the following elements: Erotic Fairy Tale, set in a King’s Throne Room, utilizing Artificial Intelligence. 1500 words, due 2/28, noon, eastern time.
Update: 25 February 2013
I finished my story for this challenge. It weighed in at 1540 words, a bit more than the challenge allowed. After some polishing, I decided I was pleased enough to submit it for publication instead of posting a link back to Chuck’s blog.
So now, The Iron Knight and the Fairly Tail has been added to my list of stories making the rounds.
