My winning entry for the bitingduckpress and storied competition, 'Protein' was posted on the Storiad site, here:
Only 500 words. It’s actually quite hard to get ideas across in that few words. But I must have done it and they commented that I made them laugh, too.
Thanks to both bitingduckpress and storiad for running the competition.
There is a new one now with Zova books. Another 500 words.
You guys should have a go!
The Prompt: The red flashing lights on the control panel told him/her that something wasn’t quite right.
Hmm… sounds like sci-fi to me… or a crashing plane… what about a chimp on the first space flight?
