My birthday is a week away and I can't wait to celebrate it with you. Last week I announced a Flash Fiction Contest and I hope you have your story ready as voting starts TODAY.
Here's the prompt,
I can't remember the last time someone held my hand or warm arms embraced me. It has been a decade since another's lips have touched my own. Now, I sit here on my birthday... no party or well wishes, not even a cake. Is this my future, to wither and die alone?
Writers, below add the link to your story and then tell all your friends, family, and fans to come here to vote. Please use your name as the link title to make it a bit easier for readers to vote.
Readers, please help me decide on the best stories. Voting is open until 6 pm EST Friday, January 17. Because I know how difficult to pick one favorite, I'm letting you choose THREE! In the form below enter the link title for the 3 stories you like best. You may want to wait until later in the week to read all the stories in the contest as you can only vote once.
The 3 stories that receive the most votes will be chosen as the winners. Each winner will receive a bookstore gift card (winner's choice of bookstore as long as it can be purchased online and use US currency). I will serve as tie-breaker should it be needed. (Please be sure there is contact info available at the site your story is at so I can contact winners.)
