What is Flash Fiction?

         The word "flash" has many meanings--all applicable to a piece of writing: a sudden burst of light or speed,  of adroitness or insight; a moment of horror, of hilarity, sadness, elation, hope and so on.

           Any type of imaginative writing less than 1200 words qualifies as Flash Fiction.  There are Flash micro-novels, short stories, poems, songs, plays and film scripts. Even a simple list of nouns and verbs and adjectives and phrases  streaming  through the consciousness of the author and written down can be a Flash Fiction composition. Fiction is the operative word here. Write whatever you wish. Just make sure it's all made up, and for this contest,  250 words or less.

          Say you can’t do it?  Check out the pdfs below of what first-time students did. If they can do it, so can you, and remember your Flash Fiction piece doesn't have to be perfect to be great.  Try. Begin at least, you’ll surprise yourself.  A journey to somewhere you’ve never gone to before awaits you.  Have courage! Take that very first step...you won't regret it, and you just might win 10,000 bucks too!

 

敢想, 敢寫, 敢說,敢做!

Contest Flash Fiction Theme

Trip to the Moon, okay got that. But trip to the New Year Moon? What on earth does that mean?

Welcome to the Infinite Universe of Once Upon A Time! 

It's whatever you want it to be in

250 words or less.

A Poem, a Dialogue, a Song, Micro Novel, Play, Movie Script, Monologue, Stream of Consciousness Rant...

 

想過飛上除夕夜空的那道月眉嗎?

孩提的時候是否想過騎著天馬又或是駕著太空梭上去探險呢?

你心目中的那彎月,又是如何的呢?

是被吃剩的月餅?亦或是無法圓滿的破碎月光?

當然,新月並非一定要指真正的月亮,那也代表著對自身的期許、對未來的憧憬或是過去的懺悔。

 

帶著這個念頭,開始你的極短篇小說之旅吧。從RAP歌詞,詩詞,小劇本,及一個對話開始。

『怎麼開始寫』的PDF檔案會告訴你如何完成這趟旅程,透漏更多關於Flash Fiction的寫作方法。

 

最重要的就是,要用英文來寫,字數不可超過250字。

 

評分標準:

創作力:天馬行空的創作能力是否足夠讓評審們一同到你的世界暢遊?

小說概念:內容和劇情是否吸引人?故事情節是否隨處可見,還是史上第一作?

完整性:是否包含完整的開頭中間與結尾。

文筆描述:書寫是否細膩?是否能讓讀者感受到字裡行間的情感?

 

千萬不要擔心自創文法,創意寫作──尤其是歌詞,詩詞,都創出了他們的專屬詞彙。
