Infinity Flash Fiction Week: Day Five

It’s the final day of our Infinity flash-fiction contest, and you’ve written about times distant and even-more-distant.

Unfortunately, when Adam sees someone’s death-date, it often isn’t as far off as that person would like. So for today’s challenge, we’re giving you a date that’s a little more immediate. Your challenge: Write a story of 100 words or fewer, set on this date:

Today’s Date: June 15, 2012

  1. I didn’t get a pop-up confirmation, but I used both of the tags…
    Is there any way to find out if my piece was entered?

    • As long as your story was posted on Figment after the announcement of the contest, is published and not saved as a draft, and is tagged correctly, you’re all set!

  2. Hi, I was just wondering why I didn’t get a pop up confirmation after I posted my entry. ‘m pretty sure I tagged it correctly.

    • Hey Joanna-

      There are three things that could prevent a pop-up from generating.
      1. Your story was created on Figment before the announcement of the contest
      2. Your story is saved as a draft instead of published
      3. Your tag is not right

      Check those three things and if they’re all set, you’re golden!

  3. i want to enter but i am only 11 i am worried that i will be way out beat
