Flash Fiction Challenge # 2 Begins!

Quick note: For those of you who saw this earlier, this is the same post, with just a quick update.

Hey, everyone! What have ya’ll been up to? Comment below; I’d love to chat for a bit!

Today, I’m excited to begin my second flash fiction challenge. Though I would have liked to see more participation, I know we’re still going to have a blast! One question: If you chose not to participate in this challenge, could you let me know in the comments? I want to make this better and more accessible to people, and your input helps me do that. Thanks!

Without further ado:

I will give a challenge to Leanne, who was awesome and contacted me by email. Since she doesn’t have a blog, I’ll be posting her flash fiction here on my blog.

Leanne will give a challenge to Katie Grace over at A Writer's Faith. Leanne, just comment on Katie’s most recent post.

Katie Grace will give Caiti Marie over at Blossoms and Thorns a challenge. Katie, just comment on her most recent post. 

And Caiti Marie will give a challenge to me. Caiti, you may either comment on this post with your prompt or email me at rachelleoneilwriter (at) gmail (dot) com.

In your challenge, give a prompt and a word limit, which you may choose. But the limit you impose must be no more than 1000 words. You have until Friday, October 10 to write your flash fiction, and you will post it on that Friday. Give your prompt to your partner before you start on your own flash fiction. No profanity, graphic violence, or sexual situations. After the entries are posted on the tenth, go to the entries from the person who gave you a prompt and the person you gave a prompt to. Provide feedback for both of them, as well as anyone else that you'd like to. 

Have fun, girls! I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

  2. Rachelle, your prompt is: "Those who look for trouble usually find it."

    Bonus points if you don't use the actual phrase in your story. :-)

  4. I have a dilemma, I don't have comments on my blog. If I do it next time, could the person who writes my prompt come here and write it?

    1. Hmm, that's rather unusual. Why don't you have comments, do you know?

      I'm sure I'll be able to figure something out, though. Don't worry! I definitely won't be holding another one until after NaNoWriMo at the earliest, and probably not until the New Year, with holidays and all. So, we'll have time to get that all figured out. :)
