A bit behind the times here but here is my entry to Microcosms 76 from back in June. As always Microcosms gives you three elements to inspire a piece of flash fiction, chosen at random. This week I got poet, cave and crime which helped to inspire the tale below. Hope you enjoy!
Microcosms added an extra – and in my opinion quite brilliant – element to Microcosms 72. The usual three elements were based around Greek mythology so asked us to create a new “myth” on the following topics:
- Our origins
- The afterlife
- The underworld
My story Dancing the Night Away is a 275 word noir/mystery tale of a Musician in a Cave written to the soundtrack of Irish Folk. While it doesn’t explain death it gives an idea of what the journey might be. You can read the story below.
