How long is forever?

In the short time since forever began, there’s been a kitchen fire creating smelly chaos, a fat suit filled with turkey and veg, a CEO snappy about sweet biscuits, an interesting trick with garden beans, and unfortunate reincarnations.

Are you intrigued by this piece of forever? You should be. And if you want to join in and contribute a piece of your own forever in 150 words or less, pop into the forum at Flash Fiction and see what title is currently up for grabs.

This is the ‘funnest’ challenge I’ve seen unfolding in a long time. For details click here

FLASHBACK IS HERE

Hooray hooray hip hip hooray.
It has been a massive undertaking and now I don’t know whether to feel relieved or super dooper nervous.

Please head over to Blurb and take a peek. It’s got real gold within it’s pages and a cheap buy at $11.50! Especially when you consider there are 34 contributors, mostly stories but some images as well.

A 'good' news update

Here’s the good news: Flashback 2011 is now laid out in its first draft. There’s no real bad news I guess, other than that the laborious proofing stage now begins (not bad within itself) however I doubt we will make the 1 October deadline I set for this project.

On the other hand, it’s truly not that far away. And it’s a bumper edition.

Flashback 2011 contains approx 200 pages of flash fiction stories written by 32 Redbubble writers. There are some real gems in this collection with a kick arse cover by the very talented Cathryn Swanson. :) (Sorry if I make you blush CS, but I love this cover so much).

Stay tuned for the release date; which will be Blurb, as with the first two collections!
If you haven’t checked out the Flash Fiction Group’s first two col…

Come Write In - #13

Isn’t it funny how one thing leads to another, and another, and another?

I was browsing Redbubble on Saturday night, like I used to four years ago, and wishing for some of that good ol’ bubble days interaction, when I stumbled across a comment by my mate Cathie T about a tshirt by Mel Brackstone

Cathie basically asked, why all the hands and art tshirts? I dittoed the question and Mel directed me to Pilgrim’s journal about a Samsung ad which I have since become completed besotted with (sorry about ending a sentence with a proposition, but there you go).

All Pilgrim’s journal says is “Just every now and again an ad really does become art.” He leaves the embedded YouTube ad to do all the talking.

I agree 100% with Martin’s comment. This beautiful a…

A very special Flashy challenge

It’s funny how a small idea can grow. While browsing on the bubble on Saturday, an interesting chain of events occurred. But I might talk about that in a Come Write in Journal later.

The bottom line is this.

Flash Fiction will be holding a month-long challenge and it is open to everyone.
Prizes? I’m looking into it but hoping to offer up some good incentives.

This challenge is about creating a presentation of an EXISTING Flash Fiction story, currently in our gallery. It is an AUDIO presentation or PERFORMANCE. It can be read out, it can be performed, it can be just voice, it can be produced like a play … provided it sticks to the exact wording of the story you have chosen.

It’s VERY important that you get the author’s permission to perform the piece before doi…

Still time for a trip down memory lane over Christmas

To all you Flash Fictionaires and those who are fans of our fantastic group, there is still time (with express postage) to get your copies of Flashback 2010.

Just a note; today a corrected version has been uploaded to blurb. So, if you get confused about the two versions, one is invite only and can’t be ordered (this done just in case there are orders outstanding on it). The link below will take you to the corrected version.

It’s just the ticket for those with little time, who commute, have short attention spans or are after short, sharp and poignant work by some of the best writers on Redbubble – and the world mwahahahahaha (whoops, sorry, bit of mania creeping in there). But truly it’s a work we should all be proud of and a jolly good read.

It’s official.
Flashback 2010 is now on the Blurb bestsellers list here
This is the bestseller list for all their titles, not just literature. So we’re up against the pretty picture books and photo journeys.

We really rock over in Flash Fiction Group.
