We're half way through the year! How is everyone doing? How do your writing habits compare with before you started this challenge? Don't be disheartened if you've missed a week here and there, or even several months. It takes effort to build up and then maintain your writing momentum before it's not part of your routine. The good thing is, it gets much easier the more you do it.

Anyone who wants to is welcome to join the challenge at any time. The milestone signature images in the first post of this thread cover the whole year, so you can earn the 10- and 20-story ones even if you start today. Ten stories written and sent out on submission in one year is an accomplishment worth celebrating.

A Year of Writing Flash Fiction: Week 26!

Mark it appropriately, flash fictioneers!

Your Week 26 prompt is: Anniversary.

You have until the end of Friday 5th July to write, polish and submit your story.

GO!

It is getting easier to write flash fiction, that is for sure. (Well, quantity anyway :) )

Great prompts each week Sophia, they seem to unearth something that may not have seen the light of day otherwise.

I just found this as well! Would it be frowned upon or confusing in the critique forum to go back and write a FF piece about a prompt from a week that's already past?

Going to try and do as many of these as my schedule will allow! Going to have to research some FF markets quickly too :p.

Thanks for doing this!

Dan aka FP.

Hi Dan!

There's no problem with using whatever prompt you want, whenever you want. The only thing I'd ask is that if you post it for feedback in Polished and Ready, don't include "YOWFF" (Year of Writing Flash Fiction) in the title. That's only because the "YOWFF" indicates that the piece has been written for the challenge, and there's a deadline for when those pieces have to be edited and sent out.

Non-YOWFF stories are always welcome in Polished and Ready. If you're also able to give feedback to a few of the other stories posted there, I'm sure their authors would much appreciate it.

Check the market list in the Submitting and Selling Flash Fiction sub-forum of this room, if you haven't seen it. :)
