Flashback to the Future  April 19, 2008 - May 2, 2008

Reading and Deliberating


Flashbacks can be a very effective tool for giving the readers a lot of information in a short amount of time, especially in short stories. But being able to make them flow with your story can be tricky.

Project: I would like a short story with a flashback that flows with the story (if you would like to submit a chapter, just recategorize it for the contest). Stories or chapters can be up to 4,000 words (I will count, so don't go over). Any genre will be accepted. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a message.

Good luck and I look forward to reading your submission!

Next Contest:

This contest is a part of the Cafe Conversations Group, although anyone can submit. If you are a story writer and would like to get your stories or chapters read, please join us. :)
