Let the Write-in Begin!

Welcome, friend. Come in, sit down, can we pass you a glass of something foaming, or maybe a mug of something warm?

Gather yourself by the fire. Here, have this pen, this notebook. We are here to write, I assume you mean to join us. Never fear, inspiration is never far away. We have over 200 little nudges to help you along, all listed below. Choose whichsoe'er ignites your brain, and let it flash upon the page or screen.

And then, when you have written, send your story through the ether to and we shall add it to the scroll of stories unfolding on this National Day of Fictions-Flash. But be warned, you only have until three of the clock on this British summer's day. So be swift and bold.
