Happy Saturday, writers! It’s Father’s Day Weekend, and I hope many of you are getting to spend it with loved ones. This weekend I’ve chosen a photo within a photo prompt, and I’d like to see your best stories featuring Dads, dad jokes, dad bods, and/or whatever dad-related material you can imagine. Have fun!

This weekend’s Free For All photo was chosen to commemorate World Doll Day. From daysoftheyear.com: “World Doll Day was established on June 14, 1986 by a lovely lady named Mildred Seeley, to celebrate not only dolls, but caring, nurturing love and the people offering it, in general… The day is traditionally celebrated by giving a doll to someone, anyone, child or adult…”

This weekend I’d like you to give us your best stories about dolls, stuffed animals, and the people who give and receive them.

In searching for a unique challenge this weekend, I discovered that today (June 3) is REPEAT DAY! Apparently, repeat Day is an opportunity to do things over and over again. So for this week’s free for all challenge, you get to go back through all the photo prompts from previous weeks’ challenges, choose any of them, and write a new story. In addition to your Twitter handle and word count, please also include with your submissions which photo inspired you (ie: Flash Frenzy Round 1). Click HERE to start scrolling through the past and find the moment(s) you’d like to experience over and over again. šŸ™‚ Have fun!!

Hello everyone! This weekend in the States we’re celebrating Memorial Day, so I’m issuing a special Memorial Day Writing Challenge. You have 360 words to composeĀ a eulogy. It can be for anyone or anything. A fictional character. A person from history. The letter Y. A sentient armchair you were secretly in love with. Be creative, have fun, and let us all fondly remember those who are no longer with us.

Round 25

 

Happy Saturday! I hope this weekend finds you all well and ready to write. We’ve got another Free For All this weekend, and since there’s no judging, I’m INCREASING the maximum word count for this week’s stories from 360 to 500. Have fun with all those extra words!

Hello all! Welcome to another Flash Frenzy Free for All! No judges, no time limits, all flash. Regular programming will resume shortly, so keep an eye on your Twitter DMs as I’ll be soliciting judges soon. In the meantime, enjoy this week’s stress-free photo prompt.

Hello all! Welcome back. Things are still a little crazy (example: I still need to make arrangements for judging in the upcoming weeks). Ā Nevertheless, I didn’t want to leave you all hanging, so for the next week or two, I will post photo prompts, but there will be no official judging. As always, feel free to comment, or arrange some friendly side competitions. Please accept my apologies for not being quite back to full speed just yet.

Without further ado, here is this week’s free for all prompt.
