This challenge has ended!
It’s almost summer (and will be by the time this challenge is over). That means big summer storms around here, which means the power goes out. When I was a kid, this scared the crap out of me. There was always a huge crack of thunder and then complete darkness; then we all made a mad dash for the flashlights and hoped the batteries still worked.
Here’s the challenge: write a story about the lights going out. It could be by “natural” causes, temporary or permanent. But, it has to contain the actual event of the lights being on, and then going off.
Bonus points for lights that come back on…
You guys didn’t make it easy on me, that’s for sure. Congrats, Cody!
The idea was better in my head. For certainly worse, here’s mine.
This was fun.
Oooh, an eclipse and being blind have already been done. I’ve got to think about this some more.
I recently listened to a song that fits this challenge superbly. Then, I saw this and…well, my entry was the result. Loved the challenge. :) Hope you like!
I had the same problem as g2. here’s the link, http://ficly.com/stories/313
I has an idea! W00tness
I’m not quite sure what happened, exactly: I wrote up an entry, and it’s not connected with the challenge.
Hm. Well, I don’t want to be accused of inflating my story number, so I’ll just put the link here:
Hm… interesting idea… I’m not sure if I’ll be able to contain my idea to one segment, though. Hope you nor anybody else minds (but even if you do mind, I think I’ll do it anyway because I’m stubborn like that).
Yay! I’ll try to participate when I get back from school. Great Challenge!
this sounds simple, yet i’m drawing a blank.. I’ll come up with something..
Want to join in the fun? Of course you do!
