BunnyGirl posted the holiday flash guidelines in the FFC blog and I wanted to repost them here. You can also find them at the FFC 2008 blog. (http://flashfictioncarnival2008.blogspot.com/2008/03/spring-theme-carnival.html)

Is it Spring yet where you are? If not, it will be soon and what better time than now to start thinking about March holidays and the start of a bright new season?

Here are a few Spring Holiday Themes to get you thinking:

* Vernal (Spring) Equinox
* Spring Break
* St Patrick's Day
* Easter

Of course, you may have other holidays you're celebrating this month or the changing of the season might be inspiring you to write some other springtime tale. Any seasonally appropriate story is fine for this carnival. And don't forget it's also Women's History Month, so bring on your strong female characters!

Submit your flash fiction piece of 1,000 words or less no later than 10:00pm Friday, March 21 and it'll be posted sometime before the next morning. I'll post stragglers through the weekend of March 22-23 on an ad hoc basis.

If you are posting your story on your own website or blog, send the permalink via EMAIL (flashfiction2008@yahoo.com). If you prefer your story be hosted here, send it as text in the body of an EMAIL (flashfiction2008@yahoo.com) and we'll get it posted. Do NOT post links to stories in the comments. If we do not have an email from your email address, we will not post a link to your story. This is a new rule necessitated by our need to confirm that we have full permission of the author to link to and/or post the author's work. This is non-negotiable. No link or story will be posted if the FFC admins cannot confirm its origin. No IP address, no participation. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

Now get writing!

If you wanted to participate but didn't get your story in by the deadline, I'll take stragglers througout the weekend and post them as time permits.

Okay, is it a bad thing that my first thought was, "Hey, I have about a week to get something done for this!"

Guess the time really does fly!
