Randomized Fun


Several months ago, I saw a post from G. Arthur Brown looking for people to take up the challenge of accepting a randomly generated title (using a program such as this one) and writing a bit of flash fiction based on it. The idea intrigued me. I actually have used a random title generator before — the title of THE LUCKLESS PRINCE was the result of a RTG. Of course, in that instance, I could try again until I got one I really liked.

This time, I was given a string of words from which to write a story. It turned out to be more challenging than I expected! But it was a lot of fun, and the results went live today.

Here is my story: “Into a Mirror with a Toad.”

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it.
