FFfAW: Week of 07-01-2015

Welcome !


20th


Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers


Week of 07-01 thru 07-07-2015


PLEASE READ

Several people have contacted me regarding the continuation of stories and how this is not only difficult to keep up with, especially when more than a few people are doing it, but it also discourages new people from following and reading our stories and blogs. So, I am asking participants to stop doing serial (continuation) stories. If you are writing a serial story, please try and wrap it up by the end of this month but definitely by the end of the week ending July 8.

As Rochelle explains in her challenge, Friday Fictioneers, stories should have a beginning, a middle, and an end in (100-175) words or less. Thank you for your understanding.

  2. Something new to work on this afternoon–thanks! Couple questions: can we use the black and white (moon & stars) “button/badge” in a widget to show we’re planning to be regular participants? And do I call you JOY, or not? Thanks, Dell
