### Now closed: Flash Fiction #38 'The Christmas Party'

The challenge is now closed.


In here straight off the winner's announcement to make sure you all get your entries in before midnight 21st December. :D

You have a week to write your story.

So . . . to make sure you have something in the build up to Christmas, the next challenge is: 200-500 words with the title 'The Christmas Party' -- any genre, romantic, happy, sad, horror, mystery, fantasy, children's, murderous, disastrous, sci-fi -- whatever you like.

Please send your story to me by PM with Flash Fiction #38 in the subject line.

Good luck everyone. Get writing and have fun. ;)

Whatever you like.

The characters might be planning it, attending/not attending it, getting the date wrong -- anything goes. ;D

 . . . and while I was sleeping the wonderful world of electronics sent two terrific stories to my mailbox.


Two already folks! ;D

Looking forward to receiving more. Hey, if nothing else your story could be the first draft for a summer submission making sure you're ahead of the posse and on schedule for publishers' calendars. Strike whilst the mood is festive. ;) ;) ;)
