(Oops, am I the only one reminded of the Flash Gordon theme when thinking about flash fiction? Yes? Ok.)
So... anyway... IT'S ON! Come celebrate with Vic Caswell (aspiring_x) of Hairnets and Hopes and me! Vic is celebrating 100+ followers and I'm celebrating 300+ (wow! you guys rock!) with a flash fiction contest! Double prizes! YEAH!!!
1. Write a piece of flash fiction (1000 words or less) with the theme of Truth is Stranger than Fiction. Use something true as your seed idea (something that happened to you, someone you know, something you've read, etc.) and then fictionalize to your heart's content!
2. Email your entry to us by December 15. My email is MaddestHatter(at)verizon(dot)net. Vic's is on her blog. You can email either one of us - I promise we'll share! We are both picking winners and we both have prizes! (Sorry, mine are US only - wish I had the $ for int'l shipping!). Please send a Word doc without your name so that we can judge fairly - after we pick winners, we will match the story to your email!
3. Winners will be chosen and we will post the winning entries on Mon, Tues, and Weds of the next week (Dec. 22).
On Dec. 22, let the blogfest begin! We hope everyone will post their entries. We will link for your reading pleasure!
Oh, wait. What else... PRIIIIIZES!!! Vic's prizes will be fantastic boxes of books, movies, and candy! Pop on over to her blog to see (she will be posting rules 12/1).
Over here at Le Dange, all three winners will be getting a secret holiday surprise, PLUS two handmade ornaments each:
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!!
We can't wait to read your stories!
