Last week’s challenge — “Dirty-Ass Sex Moves” — is live, live, live.
Given yesterday’s big news regarding BLACKBIRDS, I figured that doing a flash fiction challenge slightly in-theme wasn’t such a bad idea.
With that in mind, and given that the news is about Angry Robot Books, I figure:
Hey, let’s see some flash fiction featuring one or several robots.
In any capacity. In any genre. Get creative.
Here’s the tweak, though: I’m again going to give away copies of CONFESSIONS OF A FREELANCE PENMONKEY and IRREGULAR CREATURES. This time, however, I’m not giving them to my favorites but rather, those who get here and write their fiction first. The first
ten (EDIT:) fifteen entrants in the flash fiction challenge (as posted chronologically in the comments below after all comments are approved) can have their choice of either e-book in whatever format they so choose (PDF, Kindle, Nook). If you already possess both e-books, you can either let the next person down the list have your copy or pass it along instead to someone you know will want a copy.
You once again have 1000 words.
You have until next Friday (June 24th) at noon EST, but again, to qualify for the e-book, you gotta get into this challenge early and write some flash fiction featuring a robot in some capacity.
That’s it. That’s the deal.
Robots: it’s what’s for dinner.
Go forth and write, ink-slingers.
Here are the folks who get themselves an e-book:
