Weekly Writing Exercise: September 1-7
Join us for another friendly flash fiction competition! 

Please read the following rules before you post. Submissions or comments that don't follow the rules will be removed, no matter how awesome. Sorry. If you need to contact me to ask about the contest or comment about the photo, please tag me in a separate post. Thank you!

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. In the case of a questionable word count, I will use Google Drive to verify count.

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 only! If you have questions, tag me in a private message or find me on another conversation.

4) Your submission must be inspired by the attached photo. How you choose to do that is up to you. 

5) ANYONE CAN VOTE. Even if you don't write a story, PLEASE VOTE for your favorites! You can +1 as many entries as you like. Since stories are posted throughout the contest period, I recommend coming back on the Saturday before it closes to vote for your favorites.

6) Anyone can add their submission at any time in the contest period. However, the voting will be counted and a winner chosen on Sunday, September 7, 2014 at 2pm Pacific Time.

7) Winners are chosen by +1 count. Just that simple. (Ties will be broken by sudden death cage match, or by a call for votes, whichever costs less money at the time.)

8) 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 by tagging me into a private post.

tl;dr: 600 words or less, story or poetry, related to the image, no commentary allowed, VOTE.

Have fun! Be creative!
