Welcome to Flash Challenge!


What is Flash Challenge? A challenge to write, to produce. Maybe you have the writing chops but can't seem to get motivated to write, like Jim W., of Illinois. Maybe you've never written before but want to give it a try, like Hannah C., of central Texas. Maybe you just make up funny names, like Wendell K., of Wales. What do you do with a gift like that? You write flash fiction! Yeah! Okay! Why not!

Dear SMYL,

I want to write a novel but I have absolutely no discipline or motivation.  None, whatsoever…

See just there?  I almost stopped writing this letter.  That’s how bad it is.  I should go back to bed.  What can I do?

Indifferently,

Lazy in N.Dak.

Dear Lazy,
