“To celebrate Hint Fiction’s birthday, Robert Swartwood has announced another contest, and the final judge will be author James Frey.
From now until April 30, 2010, you can submit up to two stories in the comment section of the contest announcement (and must be submitted at the same time). Hint Fiction is a story of 25 words or fewer (not including the title, which lends to the “hinting” of the story) that suggests a larger, more complex story. Last year’s winning stories can be read here.
First place winner will receive $100; Second place, $50; Third place, $25. There are additional goodies for the first place winner, finalists, and random contestants.
Robert’s reflection post, “Hint Fiction: One Year Later,” appears at Flash Fiction Chronicles.
So, get yourself over there and try and earn yourself some dollar!
Below are my two entries. They are both on the 25 word limit. Hope you like and please let me know what you think.
You bring me coffee everyday. Same time: week in, week out. But today you haven’t. I’m sorry. There’s only so much a man can take.
DEATH OF A PLAYBOY.
She stands in the rain, across the road from his apartment. Her makeup has washed away. Maybe the rain will wash the blood away too.
You know the drill…leave a comment if you like, if not, you’re off my christmas card list. 🙂
