    March 2012 Flash Fiction Contest

    Hi everyone! So, we find ourselves in March.

    This month, your theme is...

    Reflection

    Whether that's a reflection in a mirror, an internal reflection, reflecting back on the past or whatever you interpret it as.


    If you're reading this and you've never entered before, why not give it a go this month? You never know, you might win!

    Your entry must contain some element of SF/Fantasy. Word limit, as always, is strictly set at 1000. All entries are due in by 28th March 2012. Post all of your entries in the Stories sub-forum and make sure to link back to this thread so everyone can have a read.

    Good luck to you and I look forward to reading your entries! Any questions, just PM me. (Sticky, please )

    Congrats, Cirias! Great theme.

    Folks usually give each other a few days before the end of the month to conduct the reading and voting, so the submissions deadline is usually a few days before the last day. Just a thought.

    But you are King of Flash Fiction for this month - do as you please.

    I guess I'm the first entry. I wanted to sit on it and edit, but I think it's exactly as it should be. I put this in the wrong place initially. This is the right one.

    Here is mine. I struggled fitting it all into the confines of a flash fiction, that's the problem when the one idea you get goes all grand (and a little bit Star Warsy I guess) so apologies beforehand for the abrupt ending
    Feel free to suggest alternatives!

    I'm in. A little less action than I'm used to but we'll see how it goes.
