Flash Fiction Contest #80
« on: February 18, 2014, 02:13:08 PM »
Right, for FF #80 you have 450 to 500 words with which to play with. The genre can be any but the premise must involve a celebration of some kind. It could be as simple as a birthday, a wake or even a pagan solstice ritual.

However...the festivities are interrupted most rudely. The gate crasher is up to you. Example, the interruption doesn't have to be a person, it could be an event or a thing... A plane ploughing through a village hall entrance might have a detrimental effect on the councils' village of the year celebration?


Please can you zap me your subs asap and you have until Thursday 27th February 2014.

Do we get to see the entries and vote on them? Like the X Factor?

Sorry I'm new to this!
