Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Revenge of the Return of the Children of FICLY and other flash fiction
Quoththe RavenMiami, FL FOR REALRegistered Userregular
Once upon a time, there was a website called Ficly. It was a peaceful place where burgeoning writers could post their tiny stories and have other people rate them. Sometimes people even wrote prequels or sequels to each others' work.
And then, SE++ invaded. It became a screaming chasm of anarchy and despair, punctuated by flashes of brilliance. The people of Ficly were cowed and fled in terror, hiding in the depths of secret writing caves until their new overlords grew bored and left. Slowly, Ficleteers emerged from their safe houses, but Ficly was never the same again.
And now, SE++, we must finish what we started.
Nah, just kidding. Don't make this a damn raid again, you Zeus-y geese. Yes, I just called you avian rapists. Get on over there and write a little story or two and let's have some good clean fun. If you need ideas, check out the Writing Game thread over in the Writer's Block for the Word of the Day.
Stop reading and start writing! And then go read what other people wrote.
Hit me with a herring if you want to be added to the list below.

Et cavendum valde ne permittantur libri aperti per noctem ubi cattie venire possunt.” Site | The Miami Grindstone | Twitter | Dropbox | Picture by Galen Dara
