March 23: Flash Fiction Challenge – Tough Audience


March 23, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write about an audience. It can be broad or small, and gathered for any reason. How does your character react to an audience? Is the audience itself a character. Go where the prompt leads.


It was a tough audience. I knew they would be. Some idiot had billed me as a playwright and writer and would probably sing them a song.

I was terrified to say the least. My play had been a moderate success on its first outing but how would it stand up to a city audience.

The audience looked at me with obvious scepticism not believing an unknown could pen such a potentially successful show.

I told them of its origins and then I sang the signature song from the show. I knew I had a winner with the song.

    Great use of tension, using the skeptical audience. It makes us all walk away feeling like winners!
