A few months ago I read a heart-warming story about a mischievous imaginary friend who ends up having a heart of gold. So I re-imagined the story, making the imaginary friend a malicious spirit and taking the plot in a whole new direction with a particularly horrific outcome for the little girl with the 'imaginary' friend.
What I particularly enjoy about writing for Fast Fiction is that they're willing to take a chance on quirky stories that are on the periphery of their guidelines rather than playing safe.
Anyhow, must get back to another quirky story I've currently got on the boil.
