Reporters are trained to develop a sixth sense,
a nose for when a story smells fishy.
And something about this one wasn’t right.

AUTHORS! Flash Fiction Challenge – 2018 Vol. I – Part II

THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE

For this challenge, we’re giving you a “finish the story” prompt.
Rather than a piece of dialog to build on,
the prompt sets the stage for the premise of your story.

As humanity sends its first manned
expedition beyond the orbit of Earth,
it discovers humans are immortal,
but “Mother Earth” is actually a living organism
that has been consuming their life force to survive.

ATTN WRITERS! Join Our Wattpad Flash Fiction Challenge! Request Your FREE Cover Today!

⊗⊗⊗ WHAT IS THE FLASH FICTION CHALLENGE? ⊗⊗⊗

Challenge might be the wrong word but it sounded better than “exercise thingy”. Each week, we will post a writing prompt, dialog line, or story starter out on our blog (it will also be included in the weekly author newsletter). Participating authors will then have the week to post a piece of flash fiction based on the provided prompt to their Wattpad profile.

The purpose of the challenge is to give writers a fun, weekly routine exercise to keep their writer brain fresh, even if they’re not currently working on a book. No one is judging the content of the flash fiction. The challenge is simply being created as something that can be done as a community. Participation is FREE.  No fees. No gimmicks. Just writing for fun.

At the end of each year, there will be prizes for certain markers, such as highest number of reads, highest number of likes, most weekly challenges completed, etc. Tied participants will be entered into random.org and the prize winner will be chosen using their list randomizer tool.

 

⊗⊗⊗ WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS? ⊗⊗⊗

Your flash fiction must be 200 or more words in length. Each participant will create a new work on Wattpad called Flash Fiction Challenge using challenge cover Pure Textuality PR provides. Each weekly challenge gets published as a new part in that work. Each year, we will provide participants with a new cover customized with their name.

 

⊗⊗⊗ HOW LONG DOES THE CHALLENGE RUN? ⊗⊗⊗

This will be a weekly challenge we post indefinitely. The challenge covers have the appearance of a composition notebook and each year, the color of the notebook will change. For instance, 2018’s cover is shown in the banner above and the color is burgundy. 2019 will be marked as 2019 – Volume II and will be a different color.

 

⊗⊗⊗ WHAT IF I MISS A WEEK? ⊗⊗⊗

Not a big deal. The only thing affected by missing a week is the fewer you participate in, the lower your chances of winning the prize for most weeks participated. No one gets disqualified or booted from the challenge if they miss a week. 🙂

 

THE FIRST PROMPT GOES LIVE THIS WEEK!
