30 Flash Fiction Stories in 30 Days Challenge Introduction

Here's the plan for this challenge:

Write 30 flash fiction stories (up to 1000 words) over the course of 30 days. You can write one per day for a month, or you can write several stories at a time if that's a better way for you to pace yourself. These might be stories you plan to post to your author blog, or you might follow up with the 30 queries in 30 days challenge to pitch your flash fiction stories to various publications.

While this is part of the official community challenge for August 2014, you can take it at any time that suits you. You can print out the chart below to help you keep track.

As always, you can create your own threads in this section of the forum to share your challenge progress, ask questions, or request tips from other community members.

Good luck!
