It’s been a while since the FlashDogs have been out and about, prowling the digital streets, releasing fine paper beasts of flash fiction into the wild and raising money for charity.
This is sad, because I missed them.
But it’s good, because they’re each up to other things, other projects, and that is all very exciting.
But now they’re back with a twitterfied version of even shorter fictions. This time they’re working with the VERY SHORT STORY. Stories short enough to fit in a single tweet, but big enough to make you laugh or make you cry or make you scream.
They’re bringing daily prompts, y’all just see the prompt, then cast your very short story into Twitter with the hashtag #VSS365.
What, you want rules?

VERY IMPORTANT UNOFFICIAL RULES OF #VSS365
First rule is: You do not talk about FlashDogs #VSS365.

Third rule is: Someone yells stop, goes limp, taps out… umm… think that might be a different game.
Fourth rule is: Everyone’s invited, the more the merrier.

Here’s just a small sample of what’s been going down in the first week…
