Welcome! (Can't see the contest entries? Post here!)
« on: August 27, 2018, 08:34:04 PM »
*waves to everyone*

Hi all! Danooli has kindly let me borrow her Staff of Awesomeness, and I'll be hosting the flash fiction contest this year.  Feel free to use this thread for any general questions, cheerleading, or the all-important Making of First Posts. If you're a new forum member and haven't posted on the boards yet, you'll need to make at least one post before you can access the FFC voting boards.  Oh, and you'll also want a time machine, if you're reading this before October, because they won't be appearing until then.  ;)

In the meanwhile... get writing! I'm holding the portal open until the end of September.
Not the droid you're looking for.

To your time travel machine! Or maybe just a suspended animation chamber, set to awaken you in October when the stories will be here.
