If you haven’t heard of the flash fiction contests hosted by renowned literary agent, Janet Reid, you should check out her blog.
The current contest opens at noon (EST) Friday (2/24) and closes at 6 p.m. (EST) Saturday (2/25). Winner receives an ARC of INSURGENT by Veronica Roth, the sequel to DIVERGENT, which was voted “Best Book of the Year” by the readers at Goodreads.com (among many other honors!)
Usual rules apply: write a story with 100 or fewer words. Post in the comment column of [her] blog post. (Comments closed until the contest opens). If you need a mulligan, delete your entry and enter again. Only ONE entry per person will be considered for the contest.
Use these words in your entry:
Here’s my entry:
Alone in the dark.
Striding by without a glance, your allegiance is always elsewhere.
Because I wear no leather, and can’t rock or roll anymore?
Won’t you please sit?
I heard you may destroy me – is there no other choice?
I helped feed your first, the sequel and now all three boys. I fed you when needed.
Puked, sat and farted on, I never gave up – you left me!
Sports coat on – the one I wore – you’re moving onward and upward.
I was your first risk.
I’ll wait forever.
Your old, brown fabric office chair.

There's no voting or liking, but just thought I'd share:)
PS.... Wanted to give a super Star Wars Shout Out to Leigh Covington for including me in her "redo" of Star Wars in Two Minutes. (David Powers King and Cassie Mae are in this one, too :)
Watch it here - and may the Farce be With you
