Welcome back to the home of Paranormal & Dauntless Romance.
Today is Thursday, but it’s a very special Thursday. It’s the QUINCENTENNIAL OF #THURSTHREADS!!
We’ve been doing this 500 weeks, which is almost 10 solid years. Whew! Are you ready for Week 500 of #ThursThreads, the challenge that ties tales together? This week there will be prizes offered because holy cow, 500 weeks!!
Need the rules? Read on.
Here’s how it works:
- The prompt is a line from the previous week’s winning tale.
- The prompt can appear ANYWHERE in your story and is included in your word count.
- The prompt must be used as is. It can be split, but no intervening words can be inserted or tenses changed.
Rules to the Game:
- This is a Flash Fiction challenge, which means your story must be a minimum of 100 words, maximum of 250.
- The story must be new writing, not a snippet from something published elsewhere with the prompt added.
- Incorporate the prompt anywhere into your story (included in your word count).
- Post your story in the comments section of this post
- Include your word count in the post (or be excluded from judging)
- Include your Twitter handle or email in the post (so we don’t have to look for you)
- The challenge is open 7 AM to 8 PM Mountain Time
- The winner will be announced on Friday, depending on how early the judge gets up.
How it benefits you:
- You get a nifty cool badge to display on your blog or site (because we’re all about promotion – you know you are!)
- You get instant recognition of your writing prowess on this blog!
- Your writing colleagues shall announce and proclaim your greatness on Facebook, Twitter, MeWe, and Google Plus, etc.
Our Judge for Week 500:
Gamer, crazy cat lady and novice artist, Nellie Batz.
And now your #ThursThreads Challenge, tying tales together.
“Do you come here often?”
Because it’s a special week, I’m offering prizes to the winners. Thanks to Louisa Bacio for her generosity, I have #ThursThreads stickers for your daytimer/planner. I also have Washi tape and other planner stickers. I’ll send these out to the winners. Good luck and happy writing!
