From 15 to 50: Fiction Link Up- August 2014

Welcome, everyone, to the first ever Monthly Challenge

at the Moving Quill :

‘FROM 15 TO 50’

From 15 to 50

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:

Each month, I will put up a prompt:  a word/ a phrase/ a photograph. You can choose to use any/all of the prompts in your post or just use them for reference.  Scroll down for the Prompt/s.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

  • Write a flash fiction piece on the prompt/s on your own blog.
  • Upload the post to the linky given on the page here.
  • At the end of the week, the linky will close. The linky will close manually if it hits 50 entries before that.
  • I will then pick the top 5 posts and feature them in a post here on the blog, with a link back to your blog.

*If you don’t have a blog/ if the linky closes, feel free to add your response to the prompt in the comments section here. Be sure to leave a link where I can reach you: Twitter handle/ FB page/ Google Plus page/ E-mail. I will make sure I pick a ‘Special Mention’ Post from the Comments 🙂

WHAT DO YOU GET?

If your post is picked , you get:

A Winner’s Image to display on the blog (For the Best Post)

A TOP 5 Image to display on the blog (For the Top 5 posts)

ARE THERE ANY RULES?

Well, we have some, yes 🙂

1. Your post should be a minimum of 15 words  and a maximum of 50 words (not including the title). No leeway allowed on this 😉

2. The post should be a new one, written for the ‘From 15 to 50‘ challenge.

3. The post should be your original piece of fiction/ poetry.

4. No erotic/ pornographic material will be permitted. Such links will be deleted.

5. The post should be grammatically correct and free of spelling/ syntax errors.

6. Include this line in your post: Linking this to the Fiction Challenge ‘From 15 to 50’

7. A backlink to this blog for the challenge, though not mandatory, will be appreciated 🙂

8. Please add only ONE LINK per Blog. 🙂

9. The linky will open tonight at 12:00 A.M. (IST) and close one week later or when the linky hits 50 entries, whichever comes first.

10. When sharing your posts or others’ posts on  the Linky, make sure you use the hashtag  #15to50  on Twitter/Pinterest/ Facebook/ Google Plus 🙂 Share the love!

  1. This is a fun and challenging link up Shailaja! So glad to have participated! Already waiting for next prompt…(Oh it’s a month away 🙁 such a long wait)

  2. I was soooo excited I ran off to do the post and forgot to leave a comment. This is super. Only wish there were more words. 50 is just too little and 15.. Well never mind!!! Oh and I’ve linked up already.

  3. Very bad in writing short fiction! Never attempted before too. But I couldn’t let this go 🙂 I’ve linked my post 😛

  4. Sounds cool! But you know how fiction-challenged I am 🙂 Will let the prompt(s) do their work in my head, however, and hopefully something might come up. Who knows? 🙂
