This week's writing challenge from
Five Sentence Fiction
( Lillie McFerrin Writes ) is based upon the prompt:
What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie posts one word for inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.
The horror anthology,
by Burial Day Books,
includes my poem, The Ballad of Drunken Jack.
This is Part III of a Five Sentence Fiction story I wrote some time ago called Wardrobe Malfunction. It was based on a dieselpunk/steampunk story from another FSF writer, Rogue Tinker. It was followed by Part II, called Escape. And by continuing the story, I get to use the word dieselpunk again, which for reasons unknown, excites me.
When we last left our heroine, she was hanging on to the side of the enormous analog computational engine that controlled the city's infrastructure, and though having freed herself, was still in danger as the section she was holding on to was slowly rotating.... What will she do?
