Hey, everyone, it’s here! Time to kick-off the flash fiction challenge for March 2015! I’d like to thank each and every one of you who has chosen to participate and who spread the word. Thanks to you, we have a total of eleven participants, which is way more than either of my other challenges. I’m very excited!
So, to review, this challenge includes:
- A writing prompt someone gives to you
- A writing prompt you give to someone else
- Feedback for each of the participants by the various participants
“Flash fiction” is a genre of short fiction, generally around 500 words, but examples can be up to 1000 words. In our challenge, the maximum length will be 1000 words, but each person may assign a shorter length with their prompt. Prompts can be anything from a concept to a sentence starter to a picture, etc. If it can prompt a story, you can use it. Here are your partners. Clicking on the name will lead you to the person’s blog, except for a couple exceptions, which will be explained below.
I will give a prompt to Olivia Flewelling
Olivia will give a prompt to Ana
Ana will give a prompt to Leanne
Leanne will give a prompt to Emmarayn Redding (Rayne Speryll)
Emmarayn will give a prompt to Sierra
Sierra will give a prompt to Katie Grace
Katie will give a prompt to Faith Song
Faith will give a prompt to Caiti Marie
Caiti will give a prompt to Athelas Hale
Athelas will give a prompt to Leinad
Leinad will give a prompt to me
A note on those exceptions:
Leanne and Sierra do not have blogs, so I will be posting both of their stories here on The Ink Loft. For those of you giving them prompts (Ana and Emmarayn), just comment on this post, making it clear who the comment is directed at. They will be able to comment on your blogs, though, so there shouldn’t be any problems.
All right, as always, no profanity, graphic violence, or sexual scenes. Find your partner and give them their prompt, along with a word count of your choice (but no more than 1000 words). Except for the exceptions I’ve noted, you may just visit your partner’s blog and comment on their most recent post. Assign their prompt before you start work on your own flash fiction. You will have two weeks to write your story. It should be posted on Friday, March 27th, before 3pm Central Time. Then you’ll give feedback to the person who gave you a prompt and the person you gave a prompt to. I’ll remind you about that on the 27th. If you have any questions, feel free to comment here or email me at rachelleoneilwriter (at) gmail (dot) com.
Good luck, everyone! I look forward to reading your stories!
