Announcing the 2nd Annual Flash Fiction Blogfest

Cherie Reich is holding her 2nd Annual Flash Fiction Blogfest, and I couldn't resist signing up for it.

Here is what Cherie has to say about the bloghop:

Here are the rules:
1. Entries must begin with the two words: Lightning flashed.
2. Entries must be 300 words or less and be in prose. I'm not versed enough in poetry verse to judge it properly.
3. Entries must be posted on your blog between May 21 - 23.
4. You must sign up in the linky below to have your entry be counted.

On May 25, I will announce the six finalists and open voting through May 28th.

On May 29th, my third year blogversary, I will announce the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners as well as a random winner selected from the participants list. All ties will be broken by

Now what are the prizes?
First place - $25 gift card from Amazon
Second place - $20 gift card from Amazon
Third place - $15 gift card from Amazon
Random prize - $10 gift card from Amazon

If the winner prefers an alternate gift of equal value, I'm good with that. Contest in open internationally.
I, being the over achiever I am, had my piece written on Friday as soon as I signed up for the blog hop! I cannot wait to share it with everyone, and I cannot wait to read what you've all come up with too.
Tomorrow will be an exciting day, I'm sure!! 


  1. This sounds like a great blog hop. I'm sure you will have an amazing entry, as always. I love reading Flash Fiction, it's always sonmething I enjoy reading. Good luck!

    1. Thanks! I'm really looking forwards to it. I have trouble writing flash fiction, so I challenged myself to do this.

  2. This sounds interesting. I have to say I really enjoy seeing what people come up with flash fiction.

    1. Thanks. Yeah, I'm really looking forwards to reading what everyone else comes up with.

  3. I wrote mine quickly after signing up too. This is actually the first piece of flash fiction I've ever written, so I have no idea how well it works. Since brevity has always been a problem for me, I figured this would be a good way to challenge myself.

    1. This is my exact reasons for signing up too. I struggle with small word limit, so I thought I'd challenge myself.

      Good luck!


Thank you for taking the time to read this entry, and comment. I really appreciate it.
