Weekly Writing Competition: May 19-26

Here's your chance to exercise those writing muscles with a fun little flash fiction exercise. We've seen some great stories and poems come out of this weekly contest, and I hope you'll take some time to write something this week. The weekly winner gets their story as a Featured Post in this community.

Please read the following rules before you post. Submissions/comments that don't follow the rules will be removed, no matter how awesome. Sorry.

1) All submissions must be added as a COMMENT to this post, not as new posts in this section (or anywhere else). 

2) All submissions must be less than 600 words.

3) Only include the title and text of your submission in your comment. Please don't add any questions, links, commentary, requests for feedback, etc. Stories/poems only!

4) Your submission must in some way relate to the photo below, but it is entirely up to you how to do that. It can be a reference. It can be an image from a dream. It can be part of the narrative. Whatever you choose.

5) ANYONE CAN VOTE. Not only that, anyone can +1 as many entries as they like! You don't have to pick just one.

6) Anyone can add their submission at any time in the week. However, the voting will be counted and a winner chosen on May 26th at 7 P.M. Central Daylight Time. (But feel free to keep plussing anyway!)

7) Winners are chosen by +1 count. Just that simple. (Ties will be broken by sudden death cage match.)

8) However, if you +1 your own submission, please also +1 at least one other submission.

What you win:
-Admiration and envy from your fellow writers
-A chance to practice, practice, practice
-Your submission re-posted at the conclusion of the contest and added to Featured Posts.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly.

Have fun!
