All of us here are massive fans of creative writing especially Flash Fiction. So imagine are delight when we got a comment from theheadsoffice telling us of something that they do called the 100 word challenge. After some looking into the rules of how to play we were hooked and so we invite all of you to come and join us in Evelnasec’s first ever 100 word challenge.

The first word that we are using is borrowed from theheadsoffice and is G.R.O.W.I.N.G

The golden rule

the aim is that you use 100 words but I will accept 95 – 105.

Inspiration might be got from a picture or a word.

I will accept any form of creative writing whether it be a poem to a short story the only thing that should stop you is your imagination.

So all that is left to say is GOOD LUCK and I look forward to reading what you have written.
 Once you’ve posted your story in a comment here, copy the link to the heads office
