Holiday Flash Fiction Carnival:

Watch This Space!

I'll be hosting a Holiday Flash Fiction Carnival, starting December 21. Anyone who wants to join is welcome.

Requirements are minimal:

* Must be 1500 words or less, 1000 or less preferred.
* Must have a December holiday or New Year's as a theme. I expect Christmas and Hanukkah to get the most representation, but Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa, ancient Mithraic rites, or even a respectful Bah Humbug are fine.
* Must be fiction (duh).
* Can be old or new, posted on your blog or someone else's, or even published in a zine somewhere, so long as it's linkable.

Any other questions? Just ask!

Send those story links to me between now and the 21st via the comments section below or via email to uhamp "at" yahoo "dot" com.

Heh. What a great idea!

Should I duck before you pull a Mitchell and smack me? *grin*

Now this looks like something I could get behind. Found you through Tennesse Text Wrangling. What a whole interesting network of writers' blogs. Oh, and for holidays, don't forget the Muslim Haij. Fanciful Muse is explaining it on her blog. She's in my links under Personal Blogs.

Oh, and while I'm at it, I'd like to invite all your readers to my new spinoff blog, asking each visitor to writer a description of their mental map of their world. It can be done in a comment and I'll post it and link to your site or some other way. My main writer's blog is The Individual Voice. You can get to this other blog Postcards from Bloggerville from there. It's fascinating to read the variety in Sense of Place among bloggers.

Bunny Girl, This sounds fun! Thanks for hosting. It was great doing the last one. I just had a question about exactly what flash fiction is. Is it a scene rather than a full story? Or anything goes?

Hi, again! Thanks for your reply on my blog. The link and info helps a lot. I'll be back with my entry. :-)
