Flash Fiction: A complete story written in 1,000 or fewer words.
Writing Prompt: A story idea that jump starts a writer. The prompt is folded into the story either verbatim or with minimal alteration.
My friend Richard-the-writer is a master of what he calls “flash fiction” and I hereby publicly issue him a creative challenge: Write a story based on the prompt I’m about to give you.
The twist is that this is going to be a visual prompt from pictures I took tonight at a Mexican Cantina overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Northern California.
Assume a first-person narrator (me) sitting at the end of the bar drinking Corona-with-lime and all the pictures below are taken with a cell phone from his point-of-view.
The first image establishes a context; subsequent pictures hone in on plot possibilities.
Are you up to it, Richard?

[Anyone, of course, can have a go at this.]
