October 2013 Flash Fiction Judge’s Report

On the whole the standard of entries was quite good. As a writer it is very important to remember grammar and spelling. It can make you look brilliant or awful. Another important aspect is the Title of the story. Titles are very important. A Title must entice me to read that story.

Stories that stood out include, ‘Rejection’ and ‘Deerhunter’ and ‘Vigilante.’ It is interesting to note that quite a few of the stories included wildlife in the tale. A reflection on what is on the mind of society at the moment.

The ending of each tale was very well done and the writers need to be commended for this. As a writer it is important to read a great deal and also write a great deal. Learn from the masters.

Well done on some great entries.
Remember to keep writing.
