This is the link to use at the bottom of the stories: http://fmwriters.com/flash.html

Do you like to write really short fiction? Here is your chance to join in a weekly flash fiction exercise. There are only a few rules:

1. The fiction must be 1000 words or less (not including the title or byline). Some people like to limit flash fiction to 500 words. Feel free to do so!

2. The material must be posted on a blog or like site.

3. The total number of words must be posted at the bottom of the story.

4. You must post a link to the Forward Motion Flash Friday list (which will be created after we have some people sign up). The link should be at the bottom of every story.


You can write whatever genre and subject fits your mood. Just remember that a Flash Fiction piece is a complete story, with a beginning and an ending and not fragments of stories.

You do not have to take part every week, but if you go for four weeks without posting a flash fiction story, your link will be removed. You can be reinstated later if you want to rejoin.


If you want to join in, sign up on this thread with a link to your blog or wherever else you will post your story.

Have fun!

You already know I'm way in. Here be me blog: http://caffeinatedinspiration.wordpress.com.

First Flash Fiction Friday will be 8/03/12, though, as I jumped the gun and made a Flash Fiction Wednesday. The week ending in 7/27/12 will feature an entry regarding some tips and tricks to writing flash, though, and so will not be off topic, at least.

I'm going to try and join in as well. Come on, people. This is fun, right? (grin)

Edited -- Yeah, the blog location, though since I'm putting this together, I kind of suspect I'll remember it

I'd be tempted, but I think when I was writing flash on Fridays, it got the least responses of any of my blog posts.

This is why we're trying to get a group together that will feed other people by having the link. Also, I'll try at least to do the #flashfriday hashtag on Twitter, which is a pretty good sized group.

If you have earlier work, why not just reprint for a couple and see how it works?

Well, http://worthywomanpage.com/ is the location of my blog. I haven't ever been a regular regular regular updater. It is probably a good thing to do with the thing!
