When you were little your mother used to warn you about going off on adventures. Alas, if only you had listened to her sage advice. You probably wouldn't have ended up here, stranded in the midst of a Flash Fiction wilderness.
It's been days since you left the edges of civilised reality. You're sweaty, tired, and covered in spider bites, and last night you were forced to share a cave with a desiccated corpse! Now night is falling, your machete's blunt, and you only have a few drops of inspiration left to see you through till morning.
It's a jungle out there, all manner of beasts prowl the darkness, and to make matters worse there isn't a single prompt in sight!

Welcome to Flash Fiction Month, day OMEGA!

If you are a dreamer, come in,
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer…
If you’re a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!

Welcome to Flash Fiction Month, day THIRTY.
It's hard to believe another month has almost come and gone. From the mundane to the insane, the dreary to the deadly, you, brave flasher, have stood the test of time and emerged (mostly) unscathed. The final dungeon stands open and ominous before you - take a breather, grab a health potion, and prepare for tomorrow's final challenge. You'll need all your strength.
Today's optional theme is the penultimate. Your finest hours await you - how will you compose yourself in the moments that stretch before? Show us your true colors, the ones that shine through before you take the stage, before you crest the mountain... before you face the great and terrible Hydra.

Welcome to Flash Fiction Month, dayVID BOWIE DAY.
Greetings earthlings, and welcome to day 29, aka David Bowie Day. A year and a half on, the world is still spinning and yet, not all inhabitants have moved on from the loss of David Bowie. Hydra is one of those beings, paying a homage by keeping David Bowie Day very much alive and kicking.
Bowie was known for his versatility and constant reinvention across his 5-decade music career, but is also remembered for his performances in films and musicals, too. Today revolves around remembering as many aspects of the man and his work as we can squeeze in.
Did we mention that today is also NASTY ASS CHALLENGE DAY, too?

Welcome to Flash Fiction Month, day TWENTY-EIGHT.
After today only THREE days of FFM remain, try not to deafen us with your collective sigh of relief. But what if it weren't so. What if it never ended, and Flash Fiction Month continued all year round?! Can you even imagine such an unspeakable horror.
You might have already guessed it, but today's optional theme is what if.
Whether it's something big, like - what if the Mongols had done their conquering by sea instead of land. Or something more quotidian, such as - what if you'd told someone how you felt instead of remaining silent. Use your imagination to concoct any number of hypothetical scenarios where instead of going one way, things went in a different direction entirely. How would events, or the world itself have altered as a result?

Welcome to Flash Fiction Month, day TWENTY-SEVEN.
Take a moment and think about what you're doing. You're reading a "journal" that you at least in part believe to have been written by the almighty Hydra, a mythical creature. You're sacrificing free time and sleep for no reason except that you "enjoy doing it" - and maybe you don't even like it at times. You've somehow led yourself to believe that a collection of pixels on a screen (i.e. this paragraph) amounts to interaction with another living creature. Above all else, you're probably going to finish reading this and think, "Oh, it's just the Hydra's charming sense of wit shining through in today's preamble, none of what it says is real anyway."
But we got you with that last one, didn't we? Maybe it's small. Maybe you're pretending it isn't there. But for just a second, you felt a flicker, didn't you? That almost-silent voice - a "what if" we all try to deny.
What if you're insane?

Welcome to Flash Fiction Month, day TWENTY ONE.
Whew, now that yesterday's challenge is over and your eyesight has been fully restored, why not take the time to appreciate the little things in life, and all those small details that we so often overlook.
Today's optional theme is specificity. When used well, vivid and specific details can really make your story come to life, helping you to avoid the perils of over-worn similes and tired metaphors.
So today we'd like you to take a look at your descriptions, and ask yourself how you can make them more specific? Find the details in your story that make it stand out, and approach them from an oblique angle. You might be surprised by the results.

Welcome to Flash Fiction Month, day TWENTY.
Settling down in front of your screen for some good ol' Netflix you're mid-munch when the storm outside trips your electrics for the third time this month, plunging you into semi-darkness.
Your fingers fumble for your handy dandy flashlight, which creates a pathetic beam on your wall. A window-rattling crack of thunder makes you jolt, and you think you see something shadowy playing in the torchlight. Can't be, you think as you get up to find the fuse box.
Just as you're about to flip the switch to sort out your electricity, you hear a noise behind you and all goes black.
Have you been electrocuted? Is it just your mind playing tricks on you? Or is something more sisnster afoot? 
Looks like you're going to have to explore without seeing what's going on.

Saltwater Taffy
She wasted all her time wishing, wishing under that star, that she never focused on anything else in life. During the days she spent countless hours sketching galaxies and stars. During the nights she’d refuse to sleep; she was afraid that if she turned away from her window for just one second, her star would disappear, and her wish would never come true.
She’d never tell us her wish; she was too afraid to let it out. It was hers to keep, no one else’s. It was like a secret between her and her star. The star seemed to be her only friend. Ever since her fourth birthday we had to keep her out of school. Now she was seven, but her head kept her hanging in the clouds, so to anyone else, she was a newborn constellation. It was hard to tell others that she was actually soon to be a shooting star.
Every night she’d stare out her hospital window with the IV implanted into her arm. The nurses would try to help get her back into bed, but she wouldn’t budge. She was

Johannes and Margarethe
It would be easy enough to flee. The only bond that ties Margarethe to the blind old woman is her love for her brother. But he is all she has left, now, and she will not leave him.
Johannes sits in a cage of bones, eating canned mandarins and jars of sour cherries, awaiting his death. Margarethe visits him there when the old woman is out. “I’ll save you,” she says. “I’ll find a way – somewhere we can flee to, somewhere she can’t follow. I’ll steal the key from her.” The cage is held together with steel cables and padlocks and barbed wire. There is no escaping from it.
“You know what she’s planning,” says Johannes, and Margarethe knows. Fresh meat is hard to come by. If they run, she will try to follow.
“Why is she waiting, do you think?”
“Fattening me up, probably. She keeps feeling my finger, seeing how thin it is.” He scoffs. “I always show her a bone – there are enough of them

It can be anything: poetry, prose, some new genre I'm currently unaware of. It can follow any style. It just needs to be based, somehow on the prompt--directly, indirectly, you choose. It doesn't' matter how "polished" the piece is, how much was written, or how little.  The purpose here is just to get the writing juices flowing.  After the 5 minutes are up, Person B posts their work, people read it & comme

You are allowed to submit up to 2 deviations per week to the Gallery Folders.Please submit to the appropriate genre folder.  If your story would fit into more than one genre, pick the one where you’d find it if it were in a bookstore.Make sure to include in your description that your story was written for FFM.  You do not need to mention that you’re also submitting to LitConquistadores, but it would be appreciated.  If you do not

FFM July 3, 2017 - Arithmomania
The UPS truck made a beep-beep-beep sound as it backed up Maude's driveway. She'd gone out to meet him and advised him that it was easier to back in than out, as her house lay at the bottom of a rather steep hill. Now she stood in sight of the driver's side-view mirror, giving expert directions with her arms. He had many obstacles to circumnavigate, from her carefully laid flower benches to the tasteful little statues, a bird-bath, and a row of little faux-torches - and she would not have a single one of them so much as touched. Neither would she allow the delivery man to park anywhere further away. "We do not have all day." She'd said to more than one unwilling trucker. "And there are far too many boxes for you to carry all the way down."
Usually, the UPS truckers assumed they were being sent to some warehouse or sports arena. None of them were ever prepared for the quaint little house, up in the hill overlooking the city, not far from where that one actress lives who was famous for t

Publishing Opportunity!
Have you ever participated in a writing event and wished you could get your story published?  Have you ever done it on DA?  Well, here's your chance.  LitConquistadores will be working with FlashFictionMonth during their FFM event this July and at the end, you may end up with your story published in a book.
How Does It All Work?
It's simple actually.  Every participant in Flash Fiction Month 2018 has the opportunity to be published in an anthology.  This is open to EVERY member of DeviantArt.  You don't even need to do any extra work aside from submitting to a second group.  How easy is that?
The anthology will contain 31 flash fiction stories.  One for every day of the month.  The goal is to have it available for digital and print purchase by mid-December.  Just in time for Christmas!  All of the proceeds from the book sales will be donated to a charity to be named at a later day.

Chekhov's Guns
Anton Chekhov (no relation) surveyed the racks upon racks of guns that lined the walls of his shop. Although many of them were black, each one of them possessed a dangerous sheen – gleaming hungrily like the alien from Alien. Their polished grips, some smooth, some textured, some wooden, some not, they cried out to be held, and more than held.
A drop of sweat rolled down Chekhov's forehead. He knew full well that he was in a short story, and he knew full well what that meant. He regretted now opening a gun shop, just for the sake of a lightly amusing pun. There was no way he could have anticipated the events playing out here, but looking back now, perhaps it was also true to say that he'd been asking for it.
What was the word count now? He checked his watch. One hundred and fifty words, give or take. That left him three hundred and fifty, no, less now, to find a solution, or for a solution to find him. He gripped the counter edge, his knuckles white. No, that was wasteful. White-

FFM Day 28: Reign of Crime
Jack ran.
He ran a lot in his line of work. As a detective, it was rather prudent to be timely, and in a small sleepy town, it was a challenge to get anywhere quickly.
That and the rain. It threatened to wash away evidence before he even saw, making running even more frequent.
He skidded to a stop, next to a one way street, deserted in the late night flood of rain. The streetlights illuminated a slow trickle of red into the gutter.
Melinda walked up behind him, umbrella in hand.
"Know the guy?"
"Who doesn't?" Jack said. "Did his last deal, I guess."
Melinda's smile was feral. "Time to track down his clients. Again. This time we'll get him."
They got lucky. Bones, a fixture of shady street corners, who blew smoke and who knows what else into passerby's faces.
"Yeah, we argued," he said, voice half a whine. "It got ugly. He was mad crazy, man. I drew my knife, kind of swiped it at him, but I didn't meant to hurt him. Just get away."

A truly horrendous noise erupts from Gods know where at 3:26AM on Tuesday, like the gates of hell needing a tune up. Phil jolts awake and attempts to leap from his bed, getting tangled in his sheets and nearly acquainting his face with the floor. “Gods damn it,” he curses, hopping free from his bedding and running to the window. Yanking the curtains aside he glowers at the street, eyes sweeping for the source of the noise that has yet to stop. “I swear, if it’s that girl and her hellhound again I am moving.”
Phil scans the street for a few minutes, unable to find anyone or anything lurking by light of the street lamps. The screeching stops as suddenly as it started, leaving Phil’s ears with an echoing sensation. He blinks at his clock, now reading 3:32AM, and grumpily crawls back into bed with the hopes of forgetting this late night annoyance.

The Dragon and the Dying Stars
Once upon a time, in a world far distant, the night sky grew dark. Slowly, at first, the stars grew dim. The king’s philosophers at first thought that this was nothing more than the action of passing aeons, and that more would burn anew. But ere long their numbers dwindled, and the naked eye saw plainly what no telescope could: the stars were consumed.
     Troubled, the king sent out his greatest knight upon a steed of chrome. Agravane was that knight’s name, and in his hand he bore a sword born of a dying star. Never would that blade break, and never would its edge grow dull. For many weeks Agravane rode through the void, and for as many weeks the king watched through the seeing-stone that stood before his throne.
    At last, Agravane found his foe, and the king at last saw who it was who plucked the stars from the aether like grapes from the vine.
    It was a dragon, vast as his kingdom and black as the void.

Greetings fellow adventurers,


The time of flashing is almost upon us!

FLASH FICTION MONTH 2018 has awoken, and it's mightier (and flashier) than ever before!


Name of Image

If you embark on this journey we cannot promise that you'll come through unscathed. But what we can promise is a month filled to the brim with inspiring prompts, daring challenges, literary adventure, and outstanding community spirit!

Are you ready to throw away an entire month of your life, chain yourself to a keyboard/pen, and produce 31 pieces of freakishly flashy fiction over the course of July?

If the answer is YES, leave a comment below to sign up for FlashFictionMonth 2018!

 
In your sign-up comment kindly also provide answers to the following questions three (there's a reason, probably): Ninja 

Bullet; Green What is the year in which you first participated in Flash Fiction Month? (If you're new, just put 2018!)
Bullet; Green What kind of FFM challenges do you hope to see this year?  (Careful, it's entirely probable that this is a trick!)
Bullet; Green What is your favorite colour? (If you answer incorrectly we promise not to throw you into a gorge of eternal peril)

While you're busy waiting for July 1st to arrive, why not join us on the Official Flash Fiction Month Discord Channel. You can introduce yourself, meet your fellow inmates, have some fun, and get to know the lay of the land!

Not sure what all this Flash Fiction Month business is about? Do not be alarmed! Head over to our handy (and highly informative) FAQ, and all will be revealed.

Then come right back here, and put your name on this here list. It'll be worth it, we promise - just ask any of our indoctrinated subjects enthusiastic participants! ;) If all else fails just fake it, and mimic what everyone else is doing in the grand tradition of cults writing events the world over!

Late to the festivities? It's never too late to join in! Unless it's July 31st, in which case, yes you've missed it. Tough break.

More of a reader than a writer? Or just not sure that you're up to the challenge? Well step right this way! Nothing helps more to bolster the flagging spirits of participant than a kind word, or an enthusiastic comment from time to time. Here at FFM readers help to keep the flames of flash fiction burning bright, and don't you ever doubt it!

We also suggest that all participants pay a quick visit to our latest journal full of ANNOUNCEMENTS! Including news of a very exiting Anthology that is now in the works. :eyes:

So read 'em, and then you too shall know all the things, and all the things shall be known!

All hail! Fhtagn! And VIVA!

Hello Flashers! July swiftly approaches to the tune of clopping coconuts*. As always, we're looking for volunteers, so if you feel like sacrificing yourself for the greater literary good, join us on the FFM discord server: discord.gg/h5cQVqg (no sign-up needed) and let us know! 

Don't feel like sacrificing your sanity to the endless appetites of the infernal Hydra? Join us on discord anyway for the pre-FFM shenanigans. It's fun, and there are people there! To be honest it's a bit awkward really. They've been hanging out there since last July, and we just can't get them to leave. :paranoid:

*Because it's never too early for a Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference. Neverrrr.
:new: EXPERIMENTAL FLASH FICTION MONTH DISCORD SERVER: discord.gg/h5cQVqg

Full disclosure, we have absolutely no idea what we're doing, but we hope you'll join up anyway. New to discord? What a coincidence, so are we!

You don't even have to set up an account to access the channel. Just click the link, select a username, confirm that you aren't a robot, and then click "Skip setup" when the discord browser version starts. It takes mere seconds! :dummy:

If all goes well, we'll have a lovely year round (or July centric) writing hub where people can bond over the perils of flash fiction. If all doesn't go well... then we'll still have a really nice place to hang out and talk with all our flash fiction friends. ;)
CHAT EVENT happening right now in the FFM Chatroom. Don't miss it! :party:

Question: Could the four parts show how those settings representing the four elements? How they came to be? (Talking about the challenge in day 4 XD)

We're not entirely sure we understand your question, but as the challenge does not specify that these settings must be literally represented, then they can be written about either literally or symbolically/metaphorically. We hope that answers your query, but if not, please don't hesitate to ask or clarify further.

Hmm maybe it does. If I think I still am a bit lost I'll hit one of your heads up (or all!) :D
