#Fi50 Heads-Up

Just a reminder--I'll be posting the February Fiction in 50 post on the 18th. Grab your blogs and join the fun!

What is #Fi50? In the words of founder Bruce Gargoyle, "Fiction in 50: think of it as the anti-NaNoWriMo experience!" Pack a beginning, middle and end of story into 50 words or less (bonus points for hitting exactly 50 words). I post a theme for each month's Fi50 here.

The rules for participation are simple:

1. Create a piece of fictional writing in 50 words or less.
That’s it!  But for those who wish to challenge themselves further, here’s an additional rule:

2. Post your piece of flash fiction on your blog or (for those poor blog-less souls) add it as a comment on the Ninja Librarian’s post for everyone to enjoy. 
And for those thrill-seekers who really like to go the extra mile (ie: perfectionists):

3. Add the nifty little picture above (credit for which goes entirely to ideflex over at acrossthebored.com) to your post (or one of them) or create your own Fi50 meme pic….
4. Link back here so others can jump on the mini-fic bandwagon.
I'm now posting on the next-to-last Sunday of the Month to provide more time to get your links in, but feel free to post anytime (you'll just have to wait until mine goes up to share your link).

The theme for February is:

Make a note.


  1. I think you were wondering about changing the date because of various things.... just to let you know I'm posting the Monday of the last week now, since I was ahead of the game on purpose to have a link to sign up to your post. So now I'm not going to be able to post my link until a week after you do your post. You did leave the date as 25th on the sign-up page!

    1. Okay, I did that mostly for you, and it's not too late to change it back! I wanted to have a place for your link to go (my thinking was to have my post up the day before everyone else, but maybe that doesn't make sense? . What I really need is a linky list so it's there automatically, but I'm still not willing to pay for that.

      I could also run the post 2 Sundays in a row, or encourage early posters to drop their link in the heads-up post as well as the repeating in the regular post...hmm. I kind of like that.

    2. Also note that even if you post on the same day I do, your post will be up about 8 hours before mine...
