I belong to a Goodreads group called “Pro-Active Destruction”. Please don’t worry, we’re only in the planing phase of pro-actively destroying things, so it’s cool.
Anyway, we’re doing a flash fiction contest for authors in the group (still open for new members). You can see my entry where I posted it in my author thread:
Just scroll down to “Emperor’s New War” for a very short 800-word read. If it seems a little weird here and there, it’s because we had to include words like “brother” and “sandwich” and “twilight”, and names like “Carter” and “Foxworthy” in the story to get points.
