After [personal profile] ravenswept's meme and with permission, [personal profile] kc_obrien and I present the second 30 days meme.

The rules, such as they are:
Write something of approximately 250 words, +/- 50 words, to each prompt.
Go wild with genres (ex; prompt 25 is "noir" but it's meant as more a mood/flavor).
Have fun.
If, like some people I know (*cough* Clare *cough*), you don't like flash fiction, feel free to write 30 parts of a very strange 7500-word short story.

As an added bonus! Prize! If you complete the 30 prompts by September 16, 2011, and I know you're doing this meme, I will enter your name into a random drawing for a $10 Barnes&Nobel or Amazon.com gift card.

Here is your month of prompts:

1) the story starts with the words "It's going down."
2) write a scene that takes place in a train station
3) the story must involve a goblet and a set of three [somethings]
4) prompt: one for the road
5) write a story using an imaginary color
6) write the pitch for a new Final Fantasy styled RPG
7) prompt: frigid
8) write a scene in the middle of a novel called "The Long, Dirty Afterwards."
9) prompt: mourning dead gods
10) write a story set in three different time periods
11) Write a movie trailer style trailer for a story, existing or not-yet-written
12) prompt: sweet iced tea
13) re-write a story that everyone knows
14) write a vanilla story dealing with kinky subject matter
15) prompt: ascension
16) write a scene that takes place at the end of a long road trip
17) write an uncomfortable story
18) prompt: a step too far
19) write a story in which something goes BOOM
20) Write the end of the story "The Purple Bag."
21) Roll a d20 twice (Random.Org). Combine the themes of the two previous stories for those numbers
22) prompt: knight in shining armor
23) write a scene that takes place in a place that is war-torn
24) prompt: founding fathers
25) write a story set in a library
26) prompt: elemental
27) write a story using only one period. Bonus: write the story using only one /ending punctuation at all.
28) write a story set in a laundromat
29) (from Lilifluff) Randomly pick a number between 1 and 28 (Random.Org) . Re-write that prompt as a Spaghetti Western or Melodrama
30) the story ends with the words "coming up."

Ooh, I am totally going to try this. Er. #27 might be difficult to work in. But I'll try!

ETA: And by "this" I obviously mean the ~7500-word short story, not the 30 pieces of flash fiction ;)

Once I've finished the current one, I'm in.

Oh man, yeah 27 looks to be a tough one. I'm going to be quite interested to see where people go with it.
