I co-host this music inspired flash fiction challenge with my pal, fellow writer Cara Michaels (formerly of #MenageMonday, #WIPflash, and #RaceTheDate).

The Flash Mob Rules

  • The FlashMobWrites site is here.
  • The challenge begins: Fridays @ Noon EST (Eastern)
  • And ends: Saturday @ Midnight PST (Pacific)
  • Prompt: choice of two phrases
  • Word count: 300-500 (no less, no more)
  • Post your story in the FlashMobWrites site comment box.
  • Beneath your story, please include:
    • Your name (an alias is fine)
    • Your twitter handle (or email)
    • Your word count
  • A prompt choice is offered by each judge.
  • The prompt may be split into two sentences. However:
    • The prompt phrase must be used in the order given.
    • The prompt phrase must be used exactly (no words omitted).
    • Words may be added before or after but not in the middle.
  • Examples using the sample prompt: Secretly, I think you knew.
    • Correct: Secretly, I think you knew all along about the plan to kidnap Mrs. Dinkle.
    • Correct: In public, I loved teasing you secretly. I think you knew, and enjoyed the torture.
