Hey, everyone, it’s here! Time to kick-off the first flash fiction challenge of 2016! I’d like to thank each and every one of you who has chosen to participate and who spread the word. Many of you went out of your way to promote this challenge, and I greatly appreciate it!

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. Below are your partners. Clicking on the name will lead you to the person’s blog.
No profanity, graphic violence, or sexual scenes in your prompts or stories. Find your partner and give them their prompt, along with a word count of your choice (but no more than 1000 words). 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, February 5th, by 3pm Central Time. I will gather the stories and post links to them all as a late post on that Friday. Then you’ll give feedback both to the person who gave you a prompt and the person you gave a prompt to. I’ll remind you about that on the 5th. If you have any questions at all, feel free to comment here or email me at rachelleoneilwriter (at) gmail (dot) com.
Have fun, everyone!
