FlashFeeD 1.5

Welcome, my friends.

So… you have two options this week.

Option 1: Do the usual, look at the picture and focus on the story element of setting.

OR,

Option 2: You can earn a special badge for taking on a challenge task.

The special challenge is  inspired by the predictive story craze that I first found thanks to David Shakes (several best selling authors have now joined in). You’re given a phrase, type it into a mobile, tablet or other device that has predictive text, then choose the next words that best make the story you want to post.  It gets harder as the ‘story’ gets longer so just stop when you feel it makes sense.

For this challenge, start with the words “The robot wanted to”

Here is my effort (blame my predictive text, not my subconsciousness). I’ve added in punctuation.

“The robot wanted to book a room for me to write.

I have been braver than you.

I think it’s worth a shot at the weekend and I will probably be safe to assume that you are not faithful.

Thanks very much for your help with the possibilities and the republic.

Thanks for all your support and inspiration.

I’m going away this weekend but I need to get the latest flash fiction love.”

Have fun. If you partake in the special challenge then Tweet my @flashdogs and I’ll add a badge for you.

A reminder on DogTreats:

If you’re registered, then you will be awarded DogTreats (community participation points) for posting stories, commenting etc.

The DogTreats will include badges for specific tasks or achievements (we may also award badges for special events, projects or previous achievements (such as FD anthology appearances)).

The DogTreats will also include ranks or levels. After certain milestones have been reached, you will achieve a new level. These are ranked by dog breeds, with small cute dogs to start and larger dogs (with bigger teeth) near the top of the ranks.

You’re all winners, so we won’t be providing judging. If you choose to take your ‘likes’ and comments as rewards, then we’re fine with that.

We hope this eases the workload on the competition and demystifies the murky and inconsistent world of judging.

Of course, you don’t have to register. We warmly welcome everyone that wants to participate in a friendly and positive community. If you do not register you will still be asked for your e-mail address and the first comment you make is likely to be held for moderation (to check for spam and content compliance). After this, your comments should be approved automatically. You won’t gain DogTreats by using this method (but I can always add missed points on later if you decide to register).
