The rules are very simple: we give you a prompt and you write 500 words or less (including the prompt).
You can write in any style that you wish; just be sure to use the prompt exactly as it is shown, keep it under 500 words, write it in English, and ensure it's completely made up (this is a flash fiction challenge after all).
Next week Andrew and I will post links to the pieces we liked the best and will probably do a shout out on Twitter to those folks if they so desire. After a few months we'll compile a list of our favorites and we'll get the Internet to vote. The winner will win stuff (to be determined, but we're sure they'll love it).
Next week, I'll be hosting the contest, so watch for it.
Now, head over to Andrew's blog to submit your entry!
