Update: Flash Fiction, Writing Contests, and Betas Soon Needed

I apologize for the lack of new posts and flash fiction lately, but I figured I owed you guys an update. Here’s what’s been going on so far:

Flash Fiction: I’m currently working on what will more than likely be a short story series (A story posted as Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 etc.) on the blog, inspired by a Suggestion Box prompt from S.G.D Singh .The project is currently untitled, but I hope to have the first part up by Sunday. The prompt is as follows:

Name: Octavia (Tavi) Bordeaux/ AKA: The Crazy Cat Girl (she takes in strays who become strangely devoted to her)

Place: New Orleans, USA

Time: A not-so-distant future where magic is no longer a secret art but has taken over society

Thing: A magical pen that teleports its user to the person who’s name they write–EVEN The Dead. (And fictional characters?)

I’m really excited about my interpretation of it, and I hope this gets you excited too!

Writing Contests: I was sent a link a few days ago containing roughly forty writing contest opportunities  in August. I have decided to  enter three of them, provided I can get the work done to the proper caliber on time (fingers crossed), and thought I would pass it along in case any of you want to do the same.

Some of the dates have already passed, but there are still plenty of opportunities for writers of almost every genre left!

Betas Needed: To that end, I will want betas soon to give me feedback before I send my entries in, so keep that in mind. I will only need betas for the last two entries, as the first is too tight a deadline to do so. The last two entries are due on August 31st, so a request will go up  on August 15th, and the sign up period will end on the 18th. This may change, so  stay tuned for more information.
