FLASH FICTION CONTEST #125 - Deadline Extended, March 27th
« on: February 20, 2017, 10:02:02 PM »
How's about we get the ball rolling on a new Flash Challenge? I'll make it nice and easy. :)

At least 200 words, no more than 500.

Open Prompt, so you can write about anything that strikes your fancy.

But! Just to make it a little fun, you must also include the word Time in your piece. It can be in any context you want.

The deadline is March 13th, at 1AM GMT

You must send me your entries via Private Message before that deadline. Don't forget to include a title!

Get writing. ;D

Okay! This will be good for me. It's been at least an hour since I last humiliated myself.

The beauty of the writing challenges is that the entries are anonymous. Unless you win. Then, you're outed and your prize is hosting privileges for the next challenge. ;D

Wow, Laura. I'm impressed. I only know 199. I'm gonna go open up a dictionary and learn me a new one.   :D

The trick is to put them together so they make sense, Miggs.  ;)

You do know it's not my first rodeo, though I don't think I've won one, they have sharpened my skills.

I feel like a newbie all over again. It's been awhile.

I figured. Me too. As winsome as I am, (index finger to cheek) they can stomp me without a worry.  ;) ;D

I'm in, just anally angsting over every word doing the final edit.  :)

This time I made myself promise not to submit and then bug the host to replace a file when I thought of an edit.  ;D
