So, I’m rapidly becoming a big fan of these weekly flash fiction contests that a number of great blogs run. For example, I highly recommend that you check out Flash Fiction Friday and Cara Michael’s Race the Date.
These contests are weekly and go up on Fridays and Mondays, respectively.
Anyway, not to brag or anything, but I recently won Race the Date Number 2! You can check out my winning entry via that link.
It’s a lot of fun and there are some really good people who participate (“good” in terms of both writing skills and personalities). I think that there’s an incredible amount to be learned from flash fiction, and I’ll probably bore you with those details later, but until then, why not get involved?
