What it is: Flash fiction is fiction written in as few words as possible. This event is:
A) A challenge for yourself writers--can you do it?!?!?!
B) A great chance for some free exposure--all stories will be posted on the blog and spammed to death on Twitter, and
C) LOADS OF FUN.
Rules are as follows:
1. Alright, you guys did exceptionally well with the 700-word limit last time, so let's see what you do with 1,000! I'M GIVING YOU THREE HUNDRED MORE WORDS. Make good use of them!
2. This time, the story can be about whatever you want. I'm not setting a genre or subject/topic, YOU decide. Keep it non-xxx, though! Sex scenes are fine as long as they aren't pornographic. I appreciate you, erotica writers, but we have to have a limit :)
3. When you submit your story, please include your first and last name, story title, and links to any websites in the email (including Twitter handles!). Please send all submissions to email@example.com with "Flash Fiction" in the subject line.
4. Submissions will be accepted starting TOMORROW, JULY 17, and the deadline to submit will be
5. I will be posting submissions as I get them. I will try to catch any spelling/grammar errors for you, but please be sure to spellcheck your submission because if I get a lot, I won't have time to edit them all. But I will do my best.
6. HAVE SUPER FUN WITH THIS. That's an order!
Our first #FlashFictionRun event was a great success! Eight amazing stories by eight talented authors were submitted and posted for the world to see and enjoy!
If you weren't able to participate this time around, don't worry. By request, another #FlashFictionRun event will be held after the first of the year. Participation is open to all, so if you want to challenge yourself and get your work seen, get ready to do this next year!
In the meantime, check out the authors from our first event. Show them some love for the great job they did!
