We’re hearing voices this week

One flash fiction story under 500 words a week for 13 weeks – this is your challenge.

Hope you are all warmed-up for the first annual Stanley’s Cup next week! Here’s how the week (Aug 28 – Sept 3) is going to work:

  • Prompt and mystery basket items will be posted on Thain in Vain and sent to you in the weekly newsletter on Monday morning.
  • Linkup will open on Saturday, Sept. 2 at 8 a.m. and close at midnight. Only stories submitted during this period will be eligible for voting.
  • Voting will start Sunday, Sept 3 at 8 a.m. and close at midnight.
  • Winners will be announced Monday morning (Sept 4)!
  • Each Streaker will vote for their top two favourites.
  • The two stories with the highest votes each take home bragging rights and a badge to proudly display on their blog.

Prompt – Week 12

A women dives into the ocean and hears a voice.

Is this voice in her head? A creature reaching out to her? Or something from another planet?


The linkup below is now open for you to add the link to your submission at any point this week!

When you submit your submission in the linkup (current week or past weeks), please leave a comment that you’ve posted.
