    I don’t want to pick a topic this month I want to pick a location. This way you can write about whatever you want as long as it has something to do with the location.

    The location is going to be an Abandoned Factory.

    Your story could be about why it was abandoned, what the factory made, something that happened in the factory, or something that is happening in the factory (kind of like Reservoir Dogs), or maybe people just thinks it's abandoned and something else is going on. It can be about anything as long as it has something to do with this abandoned factory.

    I hope this gives you enough fuel for your creative fires. I look forward to reading your stories.

    -1000 words maximum
    -Your piece must fit into the scifi/fantasy/horror categories

    Post your entries in the Stories sub-forum, and post a link here in this thread. Please label your submission properly so it doesn't get overlooked. Your thread title should read something along the lines of:

    September Flash Fiction Entry: Title of Story (or) Sept 2012 FF Entry - Title of Story.

    Contest deadline will be Monday, September 24th, Midnight GMT.

    And............Go!

    Argh!! I was sooo going to skip this month too, so I could concentrate on other writing.

    Now I can't resist this.

    It may be a bit of an interpretation of the theme, but here you go:

    I really haven't been able to come up with something satisfying this time, but I'll give it a shot anyway if I can find the time to write something something.
