  1. OK. Just checking if I got it right.
    I am following this blog.
    Every Wednesday you release a photo prompt.
    I write a post with that photo prompt and publish it before the next Wednesday.

    indicate the number of words,
    Tag Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers and
    Paste the URL in the comments and use the InLinkz.

    Have I missed anything?

    Thanks in advance šŸ˜€


    • The photo prompt is sent out each Tuesday. InLinkz will open on Tuesday to link your story in. The word limit is 75-175 words although no one gets in trouble if they go over that as long as it isn’t over by a lot. You don’t have to put your url in my comments unless you just want to. Most people don’t. Please make sure you link to InLinkz so we can all read your story. I’m happy you are following the blog and plan to participate!


    • Hello! We would love to have you join. You need to follow the blog, Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers. Each Monday night (early Tuesday morning) I send out the photo prompt for our stories for that week. You write a story based on the photo prompt (following the rules on the blog) and link it into ‘InLinkz” button that is on the challenge post. It is really easy, but if you need directions on linking, I will be happy to send them to you. Have I made this clear? Any questions??

  2. Due to my very erratic writing habits (I’m in a rather constant battle with a couple pesky disabilities), I’m still not absolutely certain if I’ll be joining you as a writing participant, but the whole website idea is one that I find quite fascinating, and whether I actually contribute writing or not, I would dearly love to peruse some of the results. I was wondering if that would be acceptable or not?


  3. Discovered this site just earlier today. So happy that I can have an outlet for my creative mind and not just on the football(soccer) field. Looking forward to another week of story writing.


  4. I just found this challenge this week! I wrote my first piece and it was so much fun! I’ve had a ball reading other’s stories. Looking forward to writing more. šŸ™‚


    • I’m so glad you found our challenge too! We welcome you to the challenge! Did you link your story to the InLinkz Story Board so others can read your story too? If you need directions on how to do this, let me know.
