Well the day is finally here – and hopefully some of you have been involved in the activities detailed on the National Flash Fiction Day site? If not, get over there now and see what’s happening! Flash Flood has been running since midnight and stories are being fired out every ten minutes – so there’s loads to read over there…
3rd place – Saving the Planet by Juliet Boyd
2nd place – A Little Light Relief by Zoe Gilbert
1st place – Rabbit by Al Kratz
I think this did everything a piece of flash fiction should do. It gives you a snippet of a story that somehow manages to tell you the whole without cramming too much in. It was very well constructed, subtle and chilling. I loved it.
A Little Light Relief:
I thought this was a lovely little vignette piece and such an original idea and well-written.
Saving the Planet:
I’m a sucker for Triffids and this was a really nice take on that kind of story. Again, a good snippet insight into a bigger story that manages to convey that story within it.
Well done Al, Zoe and Juliet!
The pieces will be published in the Summer BFS Journal which should be out in August.
P.S. If anyone who entered is planning to post their entry on their blog, or gets it accepted elsewhere – let me know and I will link back to it and spread the word – I think everyone who entered would love to read them!
P.P.S. Same time next year? 🙂
