Hey everyone

Kitar: I sort of wanted to fake people out regarding that, but it's not like anyone would believe I'd kill off the main character so soon (I'm not GRRM, not by a long way).

Prompt: Surprises, Vulnerable, Children, Holidays
Title: A long deserved Vacation
Perspective: Vette, Twi’lek Adventurer
Word Count: 3,220
Chronology: early Alderaan, shortly after these pieces (the last one is the third story). I'll also note that 'The Hermit' has since been rewritten in the last 3.5 years but I haven't included it as the new version isn't published yet. The general beats of the story are unchanged from the one presented here..
Spoilers: mentions of SW Alderaan storyline

Sorry this is late, I stink at using Tumblr....

Hope everyone had a great 4th!

Here is your new prompt:
This week’s SFWC prompt:

Week of July 5, 2019:

Liability: A disadvantage or debt: a liability is something your character is responsible for, or something that holds them back. It could be a literal, monetary debt. It might be something they inherited but don’t want. Perhaps another character, who really ought not to be in that situation. Maybe your character is the liability, endangering the mission because of inexpertise or some other qually. How does everyone deal with it?

Feel free to continue submitting stories for any prompt. A masterpiece missed the deadline? Don’t let it gather electronic dust. Submit it anyway and Short Fiction Weekly Challenge will publish it.

This week’s prompt not for you? Look for something more to your taste in the Prompt Archive. Consider all the prompts active and waiting to inspire you.

This week’s featured previous prompts are:

If I were a Rich Man - Our characters come from all walks of life. Were credits just a means to an end, or did they ever dream of wealth and how they might get it? Make it on their own (legal or otherwise), inherit from family, or play the Cartel Lotto and hope? In the course of their stories they become wealthy and powerful. What do they do with all those credits? Did money buy happiness? Did they fulfill their dreams, or was their monetary success empty and hollow?

Goodbye - Would you believe we haven’t had this prompt yet? Goodbyes come in many forms, from the quick “see you later” of an everyday contact to permanent loss. Write about a time your character said goodbye…or couldn’t.

It's prompt time!

Enjoy.This week’s SFWC prompt:

Week of July 12, 2019:

Craving: Sometimes, you just gotta have it. What is “it”? We often think of craving in relation to food, but it can be anything: intoxicants, attention, validation, touch, or affection. Nearly anything can be desired intensely as to be craved. Write about a time your character craved something, how they went about getting it, and what happened after. Why was it so important, anyway?

This week’s featured previous prompts are:

Midsummer/Midwinter– It’s the turn of the seasons this week, the longest day for the northern hemisphere and the longest night for the southern hemisphere. What does midsummer or midwinter mean for your character? Alternately, write about your characters longest night or longest day.

Goals and Ambitions - Everybody has something they dream of, something they’re working for in the future. For a lot of our characters it’s a defining part of who they are. What are those goals? Who do our characters want to be?

If anyone does have a prompt idea, they are still being taken. Just send me a PM and I will forward it to the proper people.
