Challenge 041:
(idiom.) 1. Having been, or very near to being, defeated, ruined, or overcome. 2. Likened to a boxer who has been knocked to the mat and cannot get to his or her feet before the referee counts to 10, thus losing the match.

It's a phrase often remarked about other people, but rarely about ourselves. It's always easier to be objective about failure, or at least imminent failure, when it's not personal. Someone or something 'down for the count' could be in business, health, an organization or even an opinion. And does it really mean that something has passed a point where recovery isn't an option any longer? Write a story where something/someone is considered 'down for the count'.


If your submission references boxing, or any physical blow that results in a knockout, that entry will earn an extra point to be tallied during voting!

Challenge ends Monday, May 15th at 9:00PM EST
• Post your submission as a new entry using the template in the profile
