  1. Can hardly wait to take up this activity again.

  2. I can’t post to the Flashy Fiction site. When I try to choose an option, it says it can’t accept my html?

  3. Glad we figured that out, Chi, Ellen. There is a limit on the size of the stories. If you should get the message that the site will not accept the HTML, odds are you went long. The solution to that is to break up the piece and post it in multiple parts. The idea of flash fiction is to write a glimpse of a scene with as much detail as you need to tell your tale. I myself run long at times. I will not ask you to lop off and important part of your story to fit the restriction. The prompt will be open all week, so there’s time to try your hand at expanding your story telling skills. Walt.
