Today is the wrap-up for the 2019 Penprints Flash Fiction Dash!
We had 39 sign-ups this year, but sadly 17 of our writers were unable to complete the challenge due to lots of crazy life stuff (heck, I wasn’t even technically participating in the challenge and had a hard time tending to it this year).
But we still have over twenty stories in eight different genres (I’m using that term loosely, haha), and they’re all gathered here for your reading pleasure!
Disclaimer: I own none of the prompts.
[prompt: Younger Now by Miley Cyrus]
These Moments... by Micaiah Saldaña.
Symphony of Change by Andi L. Gregory.
[Urban Fantasy/Magical Realism]
Monster Mayhem by Anika Walkes (pg-13 content warning).
Home Before Dark by Spruce Holly Nogard.
[Sword and Sorcery]
The Chosen One by Julian Daventry.
The Burden of Remembrance by Sarah Rodecker.
Level 1 by Lila Kims (it’s really a light sci-fi story, but shhhhh).
Lupe by Nicholas Jayne (pg-13 content warning).
[prompt: Arrow by half-alive]
The Hardest Place by Carrie-Anne Thomas.
Between Remembered and Forgotten by T. J. Priest.
The Chainless by J. M. Jablowski.
[prompt: Be Here Long by NEEDTOBREATHE]
Her Hair Is Red by Laura Frances.
Jesus Has a Plan by Farmgirl Fibers and Arts.
And that’s a wrap!
Dashers, keep an eye on your inbox for a debrief email!
Which story was your favorite? Which prompt was your favorite? Should we have another flash fic dash next year?
Some of your links aren’t working! 😬 None of the documents go anywhere, and “Moonlit Dances” goes to a different story.

Lisanthus and Lupe still aren’t working, but all the others seem to be fixed. ^~^
Thank you so much for hosting this. I had a lot of fun:).
I AM SO EXCITED! MY BABY JUST GOT RELEASED TO THE WORLD! THANK YOU SO MUCH! YOU ARE HELPING ME FULFILL MY DREAMS!
I agree with Carrie-Anne above – all seem to be working except for Lupe and Lisanthus. ^_^ I’ve been slowly reading my way through the others, and they’re SO good! So much variety even within the same prompt!
Thank you so much for putting this together, Rosalie!! I had a BLAST. (And I’m sorry my story didn’t turn out very dystopian-ish hehe.) Writing a story based off a prompt is such a fun challenge!
Oh my goodness, all of these stories are absolutely incredible!! Thank you so much for doing this again – it was a blast!
