After a brief hiatus (of two weeks) I’m back to taking part in Chuck Wendig’s Friday Flash Fiction competition. This week the challenge was to write a complete story (beginning, middle, end) with the theme of revenge. But instead of the usual 1000 words, we only have 100 words to play with. This story is just a bit of fun. Hope you enjoy!
Greyson was ready to reveal his magnus opus. He stepped forward. The finest literary agents in New York sat and watched him take the stage.
“Welcome to my book launch,” Greyson said to his audience.
They didn’t speak. Their mouths were covered with tape.
They didn’t clap. Their hands were taped to their chairs.
“You may have rejected me, but I published my book anyway. It’s called: No More Gatekeepers.”
He started to read.
It was in chapter six that an agent broke free and beat him to death with his own book. No one likes meta fiction anymore.
