A reminder:

This is a fun contest!  ULTRA FLASH FICTION

Yes, it can be done.  You can write a story in 300 words, but you must make every word count. This is our fourth annual UFF contest. All our previous participants have agreed that this is difficult, but a great writing exercise! It will require some craftsmanship.  Give it a try!
