WRITE TIME ⏰for work on your flash fiction

ASSIGN: Write your flash fiction in a Word doc in your Dropbox drafts folder. Somehow, it should be connected or related to the topic you chose for your research argument (the one that was due yesterday). No more than 500 words. Reminders that stories have a little exposition, rising action, some climactic point, and then either resolve or leave us unsettled – cliffhanger. Name the doc something that indicates it is your flash fiction.
