It's very likely that you've seen this picture above around on several blogs today, since today begins the 2nd Annual Flash Fiction Blogfest. My entry will be up tomorrow and people who've signed up for the blogfest have through Wednesday to post their entries. I'll be stopping by to collect the entries. I'll read them on Thursday and pick my top six finalists. On Friday, voting will begin to choose the top three, who will be announced on Tuesday, May 29th.
For a reminder of the rules and prizes:
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 Random.org.
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.
