2020-Flash-01 – “Resilience”

Resilience can be defined as the capacity to quickly recover from challenging circumstances.  At this time of global uncertainty, even the simplest daily tasks require a skilled balancing act. 
For our first “Flash Fiction” contest, we invite you to write a story that features resilience.  What difficulties will you set up for your characters? How will they recover from their challenges?  Fiction is a great way to express yourself, and come up with possible solutions and unimagined paths. 
Inspire us!
