Dig That Flying Machine!

This challenge has ended!

I love a good story that involves flight, whether it be huge dirigibles coasting through the sky or characters with wings or best of all, animals that can, for no apparent reason, fly, like whales or goldfish or manta rays. I freakin’ love it!

So here’s the challenge: write a story about flight. It can be whatever you want just so long as the act of flying is in there somewhere. You can use any of the things I list above or you can take it in a whole different direction. Write it in one Ficlet or write a series, either is fine with me. I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

Be creative and have fun :)
