Flash Fiction Competition #118 - Win $$$
« on: May 22, 2016, 01:52:28 PM »
To spice things up, Iím offering a $20 Amazon gift certificate to the winner!  ;D ;D ;D

 
And of course, the winner also garners prestigious MWC bragging rights, plus free drinks at the bar.

Open prompt. Itís been awhile since we had an open prompt competition.

So for this one, you can write a story about anything you like.  Just make sure itís a real story with a beginning, middle and end, and keep it under 750 words.

What are you waiting for? Send it to me via private message by June 5th, and you could be the next big winner!

Now's the time to take out those old gems and polish them up. How often do you get a free pass on prompts?

That would be great if you want to do that, but I think we all have those half finished stories that never saw the light of day for one reason or another. I thought it would increase the participation.

I don't see the harm, but if I have broken some rule I can change the requirement.

I am new to this fiction stuff, but as I understand it, any writing is good, even if it is a reclamation project, or polishing an otherwise dormant draft.

Besides, Heidi - you make the rules. :)
