First up, a bit of administrative duties — for the last flash fiction challenge I was to pick a random participant to receive an Art Harder mug or e-book? The winner on that one was Ashley Lorelle. Ashley, you should email me at terribleminds at gmail dot com.
Now: time for the actual flash fiction challenge.
I love the concept of the “War on Christmas.” I don’t mean that I like the actual faux-bullshit “war,” I mean, I like that term.
I want you to use that term literally.
I want you to write a war about — or even against — Christmas.
Or, really, any winter holiday that tickles your fancy. Hanukah, Solstice, Kwanzaa, whatever. Hell, all of ’em wrapped up in one.
Interpret that as you see fit.
You’ve got the traditional 1000 words.
Post online, then link to it in the comments.
You’ve got one week: till Friday the 21st at noon EST.
I’ll pick a random participant to receive a… random holiday gift from yours truly.
