Flash Fiction Challenge 2020: August

I’m recovering from a rotator cuff injury that’s turning into frozen shoulder, so OWCH! But still pressing on with the 2020 Flash Fiction Challenge. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to write for this month, but I thank my faithful band of writers who have been playing along. I appreciate you!

Because of owies, I didn’t do a summary post for last month, but you can read the stories (in the comments section) of the July draw post! Now it’s time for our fifth flash fiction draw!

Here’s the video of me choosing the cards for August’s challenge! Looking forward to reading what you come up with!

Closed captions were currently uploading when I made this post and should be available for this video soon.

You have until Tuesday August 11 ( 2-3 p.m. EDT) to submit your stories. Please add a link to your stories in the comments section of this post. And if you’re done sooner, you can comment sooner!

I’ll hopefully write a summary post later that day and highlight the stories that have come in.

Good luck!


Cait Gordon is a disability advocate who wants everyone to be wise and think of others as we battle COVID-19!

She’s also the author of Life in the ’Cosm and The Stealth Lovers. When Cait’s not writing, she’s editing manuscripts and running The Spoonie Authors Network, a blog whose contributors manage disabilities and/or chronic conditions. She also teamed up with Kohenet Talia C. Johnson to co-edit the Nothing Without Us anthology (now a 2020 Prix Aurora Award nominee) in an attempt to take over the world.
