I thought I posted a market or contest for flash fiction a few weeks ago. Thinking about that market/contest, I sat down and brainstormed some flash fiction. Now I have two pieces that may or may not be pieces of eight, but I’ve forgotten where I was going to send them. Woe!
These are not SF/F pieces, but just sorta weird everyday-type pieces. Well, OK, one is fantasy, I suppose. But isn’t all fiction fantasy? Let’s not get too technical.
Where would YOU send your flash fiction? To the bit bucket? To a website? To a particular contest?
I am simply over-clocked. Goin’ to sleep now. Will search for markets in the morning. I don’t want to just send to whatever comes up on Google, but a place that’s a “real” market (whatever that means), so when I find out, I’ll tell y’all about it. Deal?
They tore down this 1950s-era rocket slide in Heights Park a couple of months ago, citing “danger” as the reason. They didn’t care when WE fell off of jungle gyms onto our punkin heads! That slide was history! It should have gone to a sculpture garden! Now how will kids play “Star Trek” or “Apollo Astronaut” at the playground? I suppose they aren’t doing that any more, but still. *sigh*
