Melinda Moore, a fellow writer of short fantasy, maintains an active blog and website called Enchanted Spark. As part of the site, she runs a short story contest every two months called the "Photo Flare Contest." She posts photos, and submitted stories must incorporate the photos or be inspired by them. In February, she added a flash contest running concurrently, and I won it! "After Closing," my winning story, is a light piece about gremlins living an an amusement park. Check it out!
Melinda hosts weekly check-ins on her blog for writers wishing to report their word-count and commiserate with or inspire each other. She's upbeat, friendly, and has been just as easy-going and positive behind the scenes as she is in her public posts.
