Flash Fiction Friday. The badder, more insane version of telling yourself a bad joke. Where cliches and sentence fragments collide head on.
Join the inanity, er, insanity. Write your very own personalized piece of fluff fiction and wait for the bucks to roll in. And your meds to kick in.
So whaddya have to do to get involved? Why, you have to write flash fiction, and no, flash fiction does not mean a flasher has to appear in the story, nor do we want pictures of any flashers.
First, write your flash fiction, no more than 1000 words, and post it to your blog or website.
Second, add the Flash Fiction Friday weekly html code to that blog post or website page. Alternately, you may make it an entry before or after your flash fiction. Hint: It’s html code, so you’ll have to do it in html view. Most blogging platforms should support this, if not all. This week’s code is:
<IFRAME SRC="http://www.lmashton.com/fff/fff2.html" TITLE="Friday Flash Fiction #2" width="500px" height="300px">
Third, either leave a comment to this post or email me at lm (at) lmashton (dot) com to let me know you’re participating. Deadline: next Thursday (as long as it’s Thursday somewhere in the world, it’ll be accepted.) If you’re emailing, please use FFF#2 in the subject line. Either way, please provide me with:
- The permalink to your blog entry. It will be in a form such as http://www.janedoe.blogspot.com/2006/08/see-spot-run.html
- Your name as you’d like it to appear, real or pseudorific and/or the name of your blog
- The title to your flash fiction piece.
- If your piece has profanity or adult themes, please provide a warning.
Fourth, check out the other entries for the week and comment.
Fifth, and most importantly, have fun!
Please note, if the html code is not easily visible on that entry or page, I will remove your entry from the list. Also, if you remove the html code, you will be removed from the list.
If at any time you woud like to be deleted, please let me know.
That’s it! Welcome to Flash Fiction Friday! Let the insanity begin!
Here’s what the code will look like on your page:
Wondering about the purpose behind the code? It puts your link up on the sites of other participants, and theirs on yours, so your page rank improves along with everyone else’s. Everyone wins.
Edited to add: The iframe code did not work the way I thought it would, so have instead replaced it with a script that will do what I think it should. Please replace the iframe code in your blog with the script code.
