#FFC52 Week 52

Share your Flash Fiction stories on Twitter: #FFC52.

Prompt: Start your story with: “I’m telling you this story because you are the only person I can trust not to judge me . . .”


This is it! We’ve crossed the finish line! I can’t believe that we’ve done this for 52 weeks. That’s four whole seasons for this Canadian! Give yourselves a massive pat on the back!! Congrats to all of you for your cool accomplishment. It feels good to have built a solid writing community and, of course, a kick-ass collection of flash fiction stories! For your hard work, I present to you here’s a little badge for your blog! Display it proudly. You deserve it!


I’m going to miss you guys! Stay in touch!

So what’s next?

I’m going to look into self-publishing a book of our efforts. Not sure what that looks like (or costs), but I would suggest that anyone wishing to be included start thinking about a couple of stories you might like to submit. Stay tuned!

I’m also of thinking of some kind of other challenge (one that’s not so labour intensive) for the new year, but I’ve had a cold this past week and haven’t been able to think of anything beyond my sore nose and napping! Again, stay tuned!

    Hey, just so the rest of the community knows, I have started my daily creative prompts up again. I had tried it a bit last year, but it didn’t seem to garner much attention or feedback, so I dropped the ball. But if I can get enough people participating, I’ll keep it up. Basically, each day has a theme, not an actual prompt. I haven’t hammered down any real rules or structure yet, will work on that depending on the activity results. So, anyone who’s interested, check it out or pass it around. I’ve even thought about creating a separate blog specifically for it. If you click on my “INSPIRATION” tab at the top of the page, you’ll see the past posts, also. Later gators!

    Hi all, Mark, Adan and I have some thoughts on a possible next challenge. Check them out and let me know if you are interested or have any ideas of you own! Thanks in advance! TiV

    Hi TiV – thanks for hosting the challenge. I really liked the 500 word flash fiction stories. I learned a lot from trying to write them.

    I’ll miss them. Thanks for all the hard work on our behalf.

    I’d still like to see prompt 42 continue. I like collaborative writing. Since most months have 4 or more weeks, you could specify each week as a theme: week 1 – photo, week 2 – 6 word thingy, week 3 collaborative writing, week 4 word of the month. any month with a 5th week is just free write – share something with the group.

  6. Adan Ramie says:

    Would you be interested in a part-time partner for the not-so-labor-intensive challenge you’re preparing for next year? I’d be interested in helping if you’d be interested in having me.

      • Adan Ramie says:

        That sounds like an interesting idea. I’ve also considered posting the first or last paragraph of a story and letting people fill in the blanks, doing a ‘word of the week’ kind of thing, or even ‘turn your favorite fan fiction into original fiction – and see who can guess what fandom you were writing in’… or something like that. Haha. I’m game to brainstorm something out that we could stick with for another 52 weeks of fiction madness.
