New Contest - Flash Fiction

There is a new contest available through the Charlotte Writers' Club called the Ruth Moose Flash Fiction contest. I have not decided on a topic yet, but this is good practice to use clever words to invoke emotion and tell a story with few words.

Flash Fiction is defined as a short story, usually 300 to 500 words long, that has the normal characteristics as a normal short story. This would include the protagonist, conflict, obstacles or complications, and resolution. Trying to add all of these aspects in 500 words is a challenge, but can also be fun.

So, I have a decision to make on what I want to write. The deadline is April 15th, which means that I have some time. I am open to any suggestions or ideas on a topic. Unfortunately, after I write it, I am not allowed to publish it on the website until the contest is over.


  1. You can do it Ted!! Just steal one of mine ;P

  2. Thanks for the support. I will come up with something, I just want to pick the right one.

    And you should be submitting your own! I welcome the competition. ;)

  3. Fine, fine, send me the info tomorrow at work, and I'll look in to it!

  4. Unfortunately, this contest is for North Carolina and South Carolina residents. Sorry to get your hopes up. I guess you will have to move here!
