This is our final judged event. Alicia and I are the judges.
Are you all familiar with flash fiction? Flash is ultra-short storytelling, complete with a protagonist, a conflict, and a resolution. It's focused, condensed, and often as delicious as a single bonbon. (There's a great article about it here if you want a more detailed definition.)
Your job today is to write a 300-word flash story. Your story can be on any subject, but you must use two of the three following words: short, track, or speed.
Post your entries in the comments before the Closing Ceremonies begin. Alicia and I will pick the winner.
