Thain in Vain is excited to announce the 2014 Flash Fiction Challenge!
The new year is a perfect time to set new goals and intentions. Lose weight, get in shape,
travel more . . .? Yawn. How about become a better writer? Sound interesting? If so, the 2014 Fiction Challenge is ‘write’ up your alley.
What’s the challenge?
One flash fiction story under 500 words a week for 52 weeks–that is your challenge!
Stories must be under 500 words and contain the classic story elements: protagonist, obstacles or complications, and resolution. In essence, a beginning, middle, and end. Keep in mind that the limited length of flash fiction often demands some of these elements remain unwritten–only to be hinted at or implied. Get creative!
Challenge starts January 1st.
Each Wednesday I will post weekly a writing prompt. To get you started a little early, look for your first writing prompt on December 18, 2013.
Also each Wednesday, post your flash fiction or a link to your submission in the comments section of the corresponding weekly submission.
Tell me you are participating by leaving a comment and I will add your name or blog to the participant list.
Tell the world that you are participating by adding the challenge badge to your blog. Simply save the image to your desktop and upload.
