In honor of Sarah Hina (Sarah is a good friend of the blog)’s debut novel, Plum Blossoms In Paris, impending publication there is a Flash Fiction contest being held over at FlashFiction.in. You can check out the contest announcement here.
The rules are pretty simple. All you have to do is write a story of 1,000 words or less based on a photograph at the contest site. The winner gets a copy of Plum Blossons In Paris. I have not yet read the book, but if it is anything like the writing Sarah posts on her blog, then this is a pretty great prize indeed.
I hope to break out of my mental block (I’m not calling it a writer’s block) and get an entry done for this contest. I’ll post what I write on this here blog. Let me know if you enter, because I’d love to read what you’ve written too.
Note: Contest deadline is July 20th, 2010
