Saturday Shorts is a micro or flash fiction challenge. Writing small takes effort, but it teaches us to do away with extraneous words. It's also relatively easy to fit into our busy schedules.
The last Saturday of each month, I'll post a prompt along with a word limit. (The word limit will vary but never be more than 500.) Come back on Sunday, before midnight, to leave a link to your story in the comment (or leave your story in the comment, if you don't have a blog) and read other people's responses. I'll share your work on Twitter.
I will also consider increasing the occurrences of Saturday Shorts, if it picks up a following.
I post reminders and share the challenge on Twitter, so feel free to follow me there.
