-String-of-10 FIVE Flash Fiction Contest-

This will be but a brief interlude. I wanted to post a contest taking place that a fellow blogger (Shannon @ The Warrior Muse, check her out. Like... not her, but the blog more specifically!) highlighted today in their new post.

This is the contest: String-of-10 FIVE Flash Fiction Contest It is being hosted by Flash Fiction Chronicles. There is a deadline of 2/9/2013 11:59pm PST. Sounds like they also offer a variety of prizes, as well. Click the link to check out the details!

It seems pretty interesting, and nothing too complicated. The biggest challenge, for me, will be trimming things down to 250 words. That is, if I can convince myself to partake, which I am attempting to. The main reason being, once looking at the key words to use, I had a story instantly come to mind.

I like the idea of the contest, and the necessity of using specific words. If you glance down below on their posting, you will come across the previous winners of the contest. Some good, quick reads.

It looks like the contest began on 2/3/2013 12:01am PST, so we are already halfway through. That's a bummer, but this is Flash Fiction people! I don’t even necessarily know what that means, but I am pretending it is something along the lines of short and sweet! A spontaneous flash!

So, I am hoping some fellow writers I know, and/or random bloggers/readers that happen to come across The Cryton Chronicles will enjoy checking it out.

Get those juices flowing!

This blog entry was 280+ words. I am so screwed!

    1. Maybe tomorrow at the write-in? If it is still going down! That is my plan :)

  2. Hey...I found you through the contest. I just wanted to connect with some other people who had entered. I found out about this yesterday morning and wrote something up in one day, so I don't exactly have high expectations, but it was fun to enter and I love writing flash fiction. :) Did you end up entering this?

    1. Evening Tamara!

      Connecting is definitely good. Great job on getting in an entry on such short notice! I thought I had short notice lol

      After reading an entry or two I saw being submitted, I reaffirmed my intentions of just having fun with it. Just recently getting back into writing and am incredibly long-winded. It was a great exercise/challenge. Never heard of Flash Fiction before it.

      I did enter one piece, and was going to share it, but am hesitant. I likely will soon, though.

      Thanks for stopping by, keep in touch!

  3. Thank you for the shout-out! You made me laugh. I really hope you ended up entering this. I think I see in comments above that you did. I'd thought of entering a second piece, but never got the time to do so. Good luck to you! As I said to someone else, now comes the interminable waiting period to see how we did.

    1. No prob, I did attempt a piece and submitted it. There was no way I could get in two like I was hoping. The one was hard enough to work with. Good luck to you too! Now the wait :)


Oh My Nuts! Leave a message already, would ya?!
