June is, like, so over.

July is coming.

               July is going to be awesome.

                            July is going to be better than awesome because...

  

Flash freaking fudging Fiction flaming Month is only here again


Are you ready?




:bulletblue: What is Flash Fiction Month?

Remember how your mother told you never to flash your fiction in public? Well, Flash Fiction Month is different.  It's a month-long challenge to write a single piece of flash fiction every day in the month of July. We can also pretty much guarantee you'll have a good time, meet new people, and learn some stuff.  We'll hit you up with some brilliant unusual prompts, tricksy (optional) extra challenges, and bonkers chat sessions guaranteed to take your writing somewhere it's never been before.

Viva Flash Fiction Month! VIVA FFM!

 

:bulletblue:"I'm interested. Where can I learn more?"

Here.

 

:bulletblue:"I'm excited. Where can I sign up?"
Here.

 

:bulletblue:"Where is all this absurd, frantic chat entertainment going to happen?"
Here.

 

:bulletblue:"I'm busy during July/afraid of commitment/not a writer, but I still want to help. What can I do?"

First off, none of those has to keep you from participating. But there are other ways to be a part of Flash Fiction Month: contribute to the prompt bank, join the chat and encourage participants, and watch the Flash-Fic-Month account, so you can read and comment on the awesome flash fiction pieces created this July. All of those are awesome things to do.  This year, we're also looking for judges prepared to read a few pieces of flash fiction every week and say which they like best.  If this sounds like something you could do, send a note to Flash-Fic-Month

 

:bulletblue:"What's happens next?"

We'll be having a Flash Fiction Month Pre-Game chat session tomorrow, Monday June 30th, from 7pm GMT onwards (that's 3pm EDT, 8pm BST and noon PDT). We'll flex some flashing muscles, explain what's involved for those who don't know, and have a few flash fiction-related minigames. There might even be points involved.

After that, the prompts start rolling.  Be sure to watch this account for the journal updates and challenges, where you'll be able to post your fictive flashing efforts on a daily basis. 

Flash Fiction Month is almost here! VIVA! *fistpump*

Oh yeah.

I would like to do the chat but I've been sick for the last couple of days. If I do end up feeling better then I'll make sure to pop in.

I can add you as an admin of the group, then you edit the blog entry to add thewrittenrevolution in the list of groups to feature it in. (: and it appears in our message centre and I can vote it through. Ta-da!

Flash fiction is essentially very short stories.  For the purposes of this month, it's a complete story between 55 and 1000 words.

Thanks to the cull of non-participants I'm planning around the 12th, that could be literally true.
