X Theme #4708 #1: Freestyle Rules: Your work must be within constraints of the theme. Of course, all themes can be interpreted in any number of ways. 500 words maximum per entry, or else the entry will be disqualified. Only post one entry per theme. The highest rated entry will choose the next theme. You may not rate/review your own work. Add a rating out of ten at the end of your "review". Be constructive/honest when criticizing a piece. No mindless flaming. You do not have to enter a flashfic to rate. ---- Alright, guys, reboot 3: electric boogaloo. If you don't want to read all that (who reads?), the basic tenants to be worried about: stick to the theme, keep under the word count, and each critique requires a rating out of 10. It's a contest but it's supposed to be enjoyable. You can get prizes based on the points we award, but the ultimate goal of the Flash Fiction contest is to help people who want to write get in regular practice with other people, and get constructive criticism from other like minded bibliophiles. We're also keeping very strictly to the deadline. One week for writing and one week for critique and that's it; the participation we get is only what you all put into it, and who we can get to enter. Tell your friends, tell your spouses, tell your boss--just get us entrants, please.
