There are a couple of writing contest out there for lovers of flash fiction to participate in and some great prizes up for grabs.
Jason Evans from The Clarity of Night is having his contest for flash fiction entries (which means short fiction and word counts, 250 words or less). I know several bloggers participated with me last time Jason ran a contest and I hope to see you ladies and gentlemen this time too. Here's the picture prompt from Jason's current contest:
If this doesn't inspire some of those wicked imaginations out there, I don't know what will!! The majesty of the mighty hawk holds many possibilities! Deadline for entry is January 13, 2010, so get cracking!!
The Deadline Dames are holding their first Readers on Demand (ROD) contest of the New Year, Happy 2010!! Their contest is also flash fiction of 250 words or less. The Dames have requested that their picture prompts not be copied from their website, so if you want a peek at it, you'll have to check out their site. I will say it's a grabber!! Even if you're not going to participate, check out this picture, it's very Psycho-ish.... I can't wait to see the fiction that goes along with this one! Deadline for entry is January 13, 2010, get writing folks!
I hope everyone is having an awesome start to the new year! Reading great books, keeping warm with a nice cup of hot chocolate, and enjoying this wicked winter weather. I know it's frigidly cold here and curling up with my laptop and a fantastic book to wake my imagination is the perfect solution to the arctic temperatures. Have fun with the competitions!!
