Fun Flash Fiction Contest (token prize only)
« on: March 01, 2011, 12:32:51 PM »
Hi all

I am having a flash fiction contest on my blog, there are no huge prizes or publication as a result of entering, but in case anyone else is a fan of flash, I thought I would link to it:

I have received 6 entries to date and the deadline is not until 20 April.

I have received 9 entries so far.

I just wanted to say the judging is by a panel (not including me). The panel is a group of readers, none of them are writers themselves.

Thank you!
I feel organizing a contest is the best way to help other writers. :)
We need all the help and encouragement we can get to beat the internal critic and his hordes.

Can it be slightly over 200 words?
I don't know if I can write a story in 200 words!

Ah Jaskaran, it is a challenge!

Write a 300 word story and then trim it.  It is a wonderful exercise to write material and then try and trim it down.  I recently was asked to do a second edition of my book "Men at Birth" but it had to be chopped from 100,000 words to 60,000 words.  I felt traumatized!  But then I knuckled down and I have to admit that it is a much better book for the cutting.

I've put my entry in Rebecca.  Enjoy the judging!

Best wishes,

David

Cutting words can be as much fun as adding them!
