When I published my story Progress I said it was very timely due to the real life story that inspired the story. That means there will be a lot of politics in this post and hopefully not too much ranting! However, we’ll start with the prompt that came from Flash! Fiction itself.
The Novel Prompt
In the later half of 2015 Flash! Friday used novels as the inspiration of their competition. On the 2nd of October they actually used the famous ‘Scottish’ play Macbeth by William Shakespeare. From that story of ambition I took the plot elements of conflict and an overly ambitious wife – one of the most famous things about the play. Below the break you’ll find all the politics I promised at the start of this post.
