What's so disturbing to your protagonist? Did he discover that rampaging zombies are near his home? Or maybe your protag witnessed a terrible crime. Maybe your protag finds a voodoo doll with his likeness under his pillow. Perhaps your protag loses her job instead of getting a promotion.

Remember: if you can't come up with a full story of 1,000 words or less, try a vignette of at least 200 words. If you decide to submit a vignette, let us know that it is one. Vignettes can start anywhere in a scene and end anywhere. Nothing has to be tied up nicely in a vignette. But they can lead to stories later on.
