A number of months ago (it would have been Oct.) we had a little unofficial flash fiction writing contest. It was fun. It ended in a three way tie.

So, let's go again.

Let's add a B5 twist.

the User Name Flash Fiction Contest

Genre: whatever you like
Word count: 1000 words or less
How to submit: You need to have set up your Community account. Put in the summary that it's an entry for "the User Name Flash Fiction contest" and post a link to the story in this thread. After all the submissions are in I will post a voting thread with all the links for people to vote and offer feedback.
Entry/submission due date: Feb. 5th, that's in 12 days. If you write 83.3 words a day, you'll just make it.
Prize: Practice writing, a chance for meaningful feedback, and bragging rights.
The twist: Just for fun, your story must include your user name-- (For example, my story would have some mention of a MrBF1V3--who is not necessarily me.) it can be as character, setting or, well ... use your imagination. You know you chose that handle for a reason.

**Remember - If you submit your story here you cannot submit it to FlashSpec.**

Good luck, go write,

B5

Also, I intend to enter this contest, and actually have my first sentence. If the general consensus is that it is unfair, I will not put my story to the vote.

It's Radthorne's fault.

Hey, am I supposed to read the rules, too?

Missed that part; thanks, J. Fixed it.

I am I missing something (likely to be obvious) or is this relevant:


Errr, where's your username?

Well it all depends on what you mean.

Actually no it doesn't, whatever you mean you are missing something. HE didn't have his username in the story when I first read it, he has since added it in.

And if you are meaning where is mine...

It is there, I just hid it.

I read the first version of HEs story. It was in first person ...
and he did have his eye on that girl.:cool: But also, a nice save just the same.

If the idea is to include your user name in the most clever way possible, I might have to rethink my story.

So far so good.
