The time has arrived for IU readers to begin voting in this week’s Flash Fiction Competition. On behalf of the IU staff, I want to thank all the entrants for doing such a great job with the writing prompt and the merciless constraints of the exercise.
This week, there are seventeen entries from which to choose. You may review the entries here. Please spread the word and encourage your friends to vote by using the share buttons at the bottom of the post!
The poll will be open until 5:00 PM MST Thursday
Select the entrant with the best story for the IU writing exercise competition, "Fire on the Mountain."
Where there is smoke, there is fire. That usually portends disaster—but not today. Your character is heartened by the sight of the smoke he sees through the mountain gap. Who is he, what is he doing and why should the sight of the fire be good news?
Today we’re pleased to announce the winner of the seventh weekly Flash Fiction (formerly known as Writing Exercise) competition at Indies Unlimited.
The winning entry is rewarded with a special feature here today (which is cool as the other side of a pillow), and a place in our collection of winners which will be published as an e-book at year end.
The 17 entrants received a total of 80 votes. With 48% of those, the winner is: Contestant #5– Dianna Stover.
Your character is flipping through an old photo album. She comes upon this picture and the memories of what happened on that day so long ago come flooding powerfully back to her. Her heart is heavy with remorse. What happened and why did she keep the picture?
