|What it is|
FFL is here to unite flash fiction writers across the globe. Flash fiction pieces are shorter than a short story, and have all kinds of crazy rules and formats. Read below for the guidelines for flash fiction for this group.
What are we doing here?
As well as submitting flash fiction, nano-fiction and short stories, we'll also throw out some monthly prompts or themes to get your brain juices a' boilin'.
What are the guidelines then boss?
Flash Fiction and Genre Folders
The recommended word count is 500 words or less for pieces submitted to a genre folder (Or the straight up Flash Fiction folder if you don't want to be caged in by a genre), but a maximum of 1000 words is the cut off point.
This is a separate folder for nano-fiction masochists who want to submit 55's, and this is strictly limited to a 55 word count... no more and no less!
The lines between flash fiction and short stories are blurred, and we don't want to miss out on great writing over silly rules, so anything over 1000 words can go in here if you want to show it off to the community!
Oh, make sure your piece is actually flash fiction and not a vignette. By this I mean, is your fiction a self contained piece with characters and some sort of plot progression or is it just a short segment dedicated to a specific character?
Finally, please do include a word count in the description for every piece. It's not like we are going to count to check up on you, but it is nice to know how many words you managed to get your piece across in.
And last of all
Spread the word dudes/dudettes. If you know people who are into writing fiction, and want a bit of a challenge; get them involved! The more writers we have, the stronger the community, and then we can hold competitions and such.
