Hello, Hello, and Howdy to the hicks like me.

It's Flash Fiction Contest time again. As the winner of the last one it is my apparent duty to hold this one. So here we go.

Contest Clause: Mostly Dialogue. That's right folks, this one is about the gift of gab, or in this case, written gab. 85% would be nice, but all my "associates" are on vacation so if your under, their will be no knock on your door. At least from them. :D

How to Enter: You have 10 days to compose and publish your flash fiction story in the SffWorld stories section. (Add note on top to the effect that your efforts are for the Flash Fiction contest.) Leave a message in this thread with intent to participate or link to your story. Deadline is Midnight on Friday Aug 17.

Rules: It's Flash Fiction so 1000 words or less.
Mostly dialogue
Have fun.

Prizes: Warm fuzzies.
The priviledge to hold the next Flash Fiction contest. (1st place)
Practice.

As the MC this time, I intend to get the website voting, (I think we've maxed at 15 or so) if only to shut me up.:p

Join the Fun.
Mr.Jims

Of course I'm in.

In the interest of fairness I haven't started writing yet (when I say fairness, I mean I've not had time to sit or think anyway even though I've known this contest was coming.)

Would I be banned if I say something like, "85% is for wimps"? -- Okay, I won't say it.:rolleyes: I'd probably regret it anyway.

Watch this space.

I'll give it a shot. It's my first attempt at one of these. Be gentle.

Ok, I will attempt to wrangle out a piece in the worst part of my writing. Just waving the word dialogue anywhere near me can bring on dizzyness and fainting spells. Off to fight .. er ... write.

Yeah Dazz, you say that now. Just let your inner creative junkie out, and you never know. And we'll be wondering if you were bluffing. Don't you know the first rule of Frisbee?

Stark Raven, looked good to me. Creative, and a bit weird.

I'm still trying to figure out how HE does it. You announce a flash fiction contest and he replies with a story a few hours later.

High praise indeed! Although, I was aiming for a lot weird. ;)

Good stuff from everyone so far. Keep 'em coming, folks!
