Can you believe it's been two weeks already? Time is riding a supersonic jet for me. Anyway, the first challenge is in the books. We had three entries. Check 'em out if you haven't already.

I think the flashfic challenge will be a keeper. I know a lot of people are involved in other writing projects now and I'm sure the participation will grow. In the spirit of community, though, it might be nice if all the members voted on the prompt, say given a choice of four. Here's a little poll:

Hi everyone! Forgive my lateness, it seems my body and mind needed sleep today, can you imagine that?

[livejournal.com profile] melagan and I discussed the possibility of a flashfic challenge for [livejournal.com profile] brendan_vincent because, obviously, the more of these guys the better, right?

So, I was thinking of rules, etc. and since we don't stand on a lot of ceremony around here, there aren't many:

1. A challenge would run for 2 weeks. The due date will be in the original post and there will be a reminder post.

2. The maximum word count is 1,000, with anything up to that acceptable as well.

3. For now, we'll be using prompts from a random prompt table. That's subject to change later if we get a lot of participation.

4. To post your challenge story, follow the same rules for posting as shown on the Info Page, but include your prompt somewhere in the header. Example:

title:
author:
rating:
word count:
warnings:
flashfic challenge prompt:

And that's about it. I was reading recently about flash fiction and would love to get back to the roots of the genre: quick, in the moment, go with your gut, fics. We're really looking forward to seeing what comes of this and hopefully more of you will be inspired to write. I just know there's lots of steamy, lovely, angsty, romantic stories on the way.

The first challenge will start tonight and run through Saturday, May 22nd. Your prompt is: "storm"

We'd also really like to know what you think of this idea, so a tiny poll:
