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 genre (Sci-Fi), an event (Seeing a rainbow) and to use a certain word (Micro). It took me a while to find the right idea and to get it to work in a way I was happy with. But like the last time I entered something similar, I enjoyed the desire to find the story that sparked the right way for me. So, for the sake of creativity, here is 1 of the 24 rejected stories in a 100 word format..

The rainbow shatters and Sammy tumbles through it, screaming in agony as shards of stars cut and tear at his flesh. Then the ground is suddenly in his face, and for several moments he lay there silent and still.
“Pathetic,” a voice snarls from somewhere above, as Sammy awkwardly picks his bloody carcass from the ground.
“B-B-Better t-t-than having a-a-a micro dick,” Sammy stammers through quivering lips.
The beast appears from out of the darkness thrusting itself on top of Sammy, and as it pins him to the ground it smiles broadly while it holds its enormous penis in hand.
