It’s officially the start of July, and with that comes the literary venture that is Flash Fiction Month (FFM). For the uninitiated, FFM is an annual writing event run from DeviantArt. It challenges
victims participants to write a piece of flash fiction, which is between 55 and 1000 words long, each day from the 1st to the 31st of July.
As well as the standard challenge of making words appear, participants are also encouraged to write pieces that fit certain prompts or restrictions. These challenges are offered up throughout the month as sacrifices to the creative writing deities, in the hopes that the well of inspiration will never be dry.
If you would like to know more about FFM, you can find the official announcement here. It’s free to join, and you are not required to be a member of DeviantArt, or even to sign up. Just stop by each day to see the new prompts and challenge yourself to take part.
