November 9: Flash Fiction Challenge – Nanjo’s New Pitch.


November 9, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a fictional story about The Real Nanjo Castille. You can set any gender, era or genre to reveal the character behind the mystery. You can also imagine the daily life of The Real Nanjo Castille. Go where the prompt leads.


In a small darkened room in the basement of his parent’s home Nanjo sits at his computer wishing more than anything to be a writer. He has learning issues, he knows that, but with the aid of his spell checker, he is making every post a winner. He was told, the purpose of a good writer is to make your reader believe you are who you say you are.

Today he has an idea: “Its Chewsday, I wan tell yous all about a grate deel, sex for the price of one.” Nanjo sits back pleased with his opening statement.

  1. Haha. Nanjo is no different to the rest of us except hopefully we can spell.

    I’ve always wondered why these spammers can’t spell.

  3. Lyn says:

    Aah… the joy of spellcheck. That’s why it pays to have a proof reader other than yourself…and spellcheck. Poor guy, you have to feel sorry for him.

  4. Norah says:

    Love it! This is a great response.

  5. Charli Mills says:

    Aw, this makes me want to see Nanjo succeed, but his opening line is going to be difficut to overcome! Great flash, Michael.
