Today I wanted to mention a little flash fiction contest I’m participating in. Christa Desir has been collecting entries for her This One Time at Band Camp flash fiction contest.

She is giving away an incredible prize, a gift card and a 10-page critique to the story with the most votes. Very cool.

So since I submitted a piece, I thought it might be fun if the readers on my blog can guess which one is mine. Christa will be posting the band camp stories soon and will leave them up for the month. On July 31st she will announce the winner. So make sure you vote on your favorite.

On July 29th, I’ll do a post on this blog inviting you to guess which was mine. Of the people that guess right, I’ll throw their names into a hat to pick a winner, and that person will receive a $10 gift card to Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

Here is a little blurb from Christa’s site:

Keep in mind that all stories must start with: “This one time at band camp…”

They do NOT have to be true. Although if you want them to be because you have an awesome band camp story, then go for it. You do NOT have to be a writer. Just do it. It’ll be fun and get your creative juices flowing. Stories will be posted ANONYMOUSLY.

So make sure you watch her site for postings. Or check back here, I’ll let you know when they go up.

I’m excited because this is my first attempt at flash fiction. Have you written any or competed in ff contests?

  1. That’s so funny! My oldest son constantly starts his sentences “Mommy, this one time…” and then I’ll say “At band camp?” He looks at me like I’ve gone nuts. “No, when Blake and me…” Hopefully he won’t know what I’m talking about until he’s 25. :)

  2. I already visited. I have no clue which is yours. I’ve written flash fiction for blogfests, some contests and some not, and it’s quite fun.

  3. Hi, again! I decided you needed some awards for your fabulous blog! If you would like them, come on over and pick them up!

    For fun! I enjoy flash fiction… it’s great for the mind. Though I usually don’t do it unless it’s for a contest ;) Thanks for pointing this out! :D

  5. This was a MUCH better way to do things than the way I did them, Suzi. I’m feeling a little guilty here…. I’m excited to go back and guess which one is yours! I did vote for another one (not mine) but I don’t know who it belongs to. Hmmm….
