The #FridayFlash Report – Vol 3 Number 36

February 4, 2012 in Community News, FridayFlash Report by Tim VanSant

We had 47 stories in the Collector this week with 1 Debut and 8 serials. Please welcome Amy Lee Burgess to the community. The stories this week fall under 12 different genres; the most common this week are Horror and Slice of Life, with several Fantasy and Paranormal too. What a wonderfully diverse community we have! We will probably never be able to list every possible genre, but do you think there are any important ones we are missing? Do you ever choose Unspecified because the genre you really want isn’t one of our choices? Let me know in the comments or use one of the contact methods in my profile.

Make sure you read Editor E. D. Johnson’s post about The FFDO A-Team. This is your opportunity to write an article each month to be featured right here on the FFDO home page. You can get a little (international) name recognition for yourself, but more importantly you’ll be contributing support to one of the finest writing communities anywhere. Email E. D. at the address in his post. (We don’t want any sad pandas.)

There has been lots of terrific news in our weekly News Flash reports compiled by Estrella Azul. Keep sharing all the great links to publications, book launches, contests, markets for flash fiction, new gigs, etc. with your community. Estrella has contact info at the bottom of each News Flash.

As always, if your story is not in the listing below please go to the Collector and add the details. It will be in next week’s listing. ~Tim
