The Inaugural TNF Flash Fiction War

Yes, that's right!

Do you think you've got what it takes? Can you beat out the other TNF writers in a grueling battle of deranged wits? Can you concoct a 1,000-word-or-less story that will tower above all others and shatter their hopes and dreams of ever competing against you in the future?

Well bring it on, we say!

You can write about anything you want, as long as it pertains to the contest theme.

The theme is: ...and that's why I keep my eye in a pickle jar.

The deadline is September 30th. At that time, the TNF editors will judge each story and determine a winner. There are prizes at stake, so please submit only your best. I think it goes without saying that the winner will be a lock for a slot in Long Live The New Flesh: Year Two.

So what are you waiting for? Tell us why you keep your eye in a pickle jar!


  1. Hi

    Must we use the actual phrase "...and that's why I keep my eye in a pickle jar."?

    Thanks. Mine's almost ready. :)

  2. Hi Lily, no, you don't have to use the exact phrase, it's just the theme. Can't wait to read your story! :)

  3. Thanks. Dressing-Up Box is on its way!

    Thanks for considering my story.
