For those of you who have done Flash Fiction before, you know how this works. You have a month to write a short piece of any genre. It could be fiction, non-fiction, life-writing, or even a poem – the choice is entirely yours. Last month’s experimental word count proved to be a tad too small, so for your challenge this month you have 1,000 words to play with! You can’t go over, but also don’t panic if you fall shy – it’s a maximum limit and you don’t have to use the full allotment if you don’t want to.
This month is a bit different to previously. Whereas before you had a list of words to fit into your piece, now you only have an idea. If you can fit the words in then go for it – but don’t feel that you have to; sometimes it’s better to leave it unsaid, if saying it would ruin the story.
This month’s idea:
Once Bitten, Twice Shy
Remember: the deadline is Saturday 4th February and you must mark on your email whether you want your piece critiqued or just read.
Good Luck Everyone!
P.S. If you missed the last meeting and want to give the challenge a go, then send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
