Flash Fiction: Naming the Band

This little piece was written in response to the 100 words only flash fiction challenge posted by Chuck Wendig last Friday, 20 March 2015. It also serves as an introduction to next week’s story, which I have already started writing. I’m not that happy with it, but I did write it in about five minutes. Next week’s story will be better. (I hope.)


Naming the Band


“What’s the band’s name?”

My band mates and I look at each other. We’d decided not to use our original name, but hadn’t picked a new one. “Princes of the Apocalypse. Like the song,” Theo said. The rest of us nod.

We’d just finished our first song, without having been announced first. Now we would be announced; we’ve got to have a name. Our first gig has been… interesting.

Unorganized. Not us, the venue. New bar. New to having live music, anyway. Not too busy, so maybe it is new.

I hope the rest of the evening goes better.



Thanks to Georgia for the idea for this week’s story. And next week’s story. I told you it would be more than 100 words!
