“Life Happens” Flash Fiction Contest – Random Story Generation

We’re going to be trying out a new feature for our next Flash Fiction Contest, to begin at the end of this week!

Each contestant will be given three random images that must be used as the basis for their story.

Each contestant will receive one set of images, which may be terminated for a second set.  If the contestant chooses to get a second set, the first set is gone and he can only use the new set.

Writers could be left stringing together a tiger, a pirate ship and a gravestone in 500 words or less.  Or perhaps a knife, a dinosaur and a hamburger.

There’s no way to plan ahead on this one.  Be ready to jump in on Friday, generate your images and put together a story fast!

Two winners will be determined by popular vote.  Two additional winners will be chosen by CCC judges based on writing quality, and how well the three images have been incorporated.

Good luck!
