Flash Fiction Challenge

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! 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. Previously some people have had difficulty sticking within the word limit so you have an extra 10% to play with: that’s 1100 in total!  
This month is a proverb, a theme. 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: Never Judge a Book by its Cover

Remember: the deadline is Saturday 7th April 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
