100 Word Story

Near The Canyon – 100 Word Microfiction Short Story

I entered a short story competition that required me to write a 100 word short story in 24 hours. The story needed to meet three things, a theme (Comedy), a situation (Climbing a Mountain) and a word that needed to be used (Radar). It took me a while to find the right idea, and get it to work in a way I was happy with, but that’s not saying I didn’t enjoy the process,  and the stories that didn’t make the cut. So, for the sake of creativity, here is the rejected 100 word stories I wrote..

“Stage fright?”
“That pretty much sums it up. I’ve never been one of those guys who could go, just anywhere. It’s either my toilet, or a well-ventilated toilet that has no one anywhere n-n-nnear the immediate v-v-vvicinityyyyy!” He stammers as he lets rip with an explosive wet fart.
