Last Friday’s Flash Fiction Challenge from Terribleminds.com called ‘one small story in seven acts’ was to create a piece of Flash Fiction of no more than 1000 words that follows a basic seven act structure.
These acts are as follows, and I quote from Chuck himself here.
“Behold, a rough seven-act structure: Intro (duh) –> Problem or Attack (duh) –> Initial Struggle (character first tussles with source of conflict) –> Complications (conflict worsens, deepens, changes) –> Failed Attempts (oops, that didn’t work) –> Major Crisis (holy goatfucker shitbomb, everything’s gone pear-shaped) –> Climax and Resolution (duh).”

So with all that said here’s my entry called The Luck of Korneal. It’s based on my character in the video game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim although the plot of the story was invented for this challenge.
