Horror House Wednesday: Flash Fiction Contest #1
A few days ago, I asked for some suggestions on how to improve my website, along with what features I should add. One immediate feature I’m adding today is a weekly flash fiction contest as suggested by Silver Stone due to the lack of not prompts (there are sea urchins worth of them in the WordPress sea) but rather flash fiction contests.
For those who wonder what flash fiction is, flash fiction is a piece of fiction that ranges from 5 to 1,500 words. In this contest, the maximum amount of words I will allow is 450. Minimum is 5.
Here’s how this will work. Each Wednesday, I will post a new prompt whether a photo, quote, or anything correlated to literature or writing that can inspire a flash fiction piece with a maximum of 450 words or less.
You can submit your entries in this comment section or even put a link of the piece from your blog in the comments, and I will decide on a winner the next Tuesday—the day before the prompt starts over again. Everyone’s entries will be included in the post as well.
With that aside, here is the prompt for this week:
“Who are we then, if not for our memories?”
You can make it into any genre you want, you can use explicit language, violence, horror and gore. But please nothing discriminatory, racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-semitic, prejudice or harmful/demeaning to a group of people.
Have fun with it, and happy writing!
