The #FridayFlash Report – Vol 3 Number 42

We had 52 stories in the Collector this week with 3 Debuts. Please welcome Shan Jeniah Burton, Stu, and Chris Cruz to the community. The stories this week fall under 15 different genres; the most common this week are Fantasy, Horror, and Slice of Life. What a wonderfully diverse community we have!

While #FridayFlash as a Twitter meme is nearly three years old this site is a more recent development. The first post here on FFDO went up just a year ago on 22 March 2011. We are still growing and still trying to determine how best to serve the community. As we approach our first anniversary, we hope you will take some time to consider what this community means to you. What can we do together to make #FridayFlash even better?

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
