What is 5MinuteFiction, you say? It’s an adrenaline-fueled, instant-gratification sort of writing contest. Sound fun? Great! Get in there and get dirty!
* You get five minutes to write a piece of prose or poetry in any style or genre. Just make it up and have fun!
* You must BEGIN your entry with the following sentence (it’s related to my novel, but you get to make up your own story):
When the ten gods of the Kingdom of Rezzia went to war with the mystics of the lands of Pawelon, neither side could gain any advantage until …
(Note: The above sentence is the prompt. The picture below is just for decoration/inspiration.)
To enter, leave a comment with your entry on this very blog post. I’ll close the contest at 1:45 pm Eastern (you should only write for five minutes and then immediately post your entry).
At the close of the contest, I’ll nominate five finalists and put up a poll in a new thread. When I wake up on Wednesday, I’ll close the poll and declare the winner.
For updates, follow us on twitter with the #5MinuteFiction hashtag.

This is gonna be fun! My blog is hosting an excellent flash fiction contest that’s normally organized every week by my writer-friend, Leah Petersen. Leah has a SciFi novel coming out through Dragon Moon Press in the Spring of 2012. It’s called Fighting Gravity, and I’m sure I’ll be talking more about it down the road.
Since I get to be king for a day (host and judge of #5MinuteFiction), this week’s contest will be fantasy-flavored and The Black God’s War-flavored (that’s my epic fantasy novel that just came out this month). The winner will win a free copy of my novel, whether in ebook or trade paperback (winner’s choice). You can also read a free 5-chapter preview of my book in your browser.
