2004. I sent in a story for the June-July Flash contest and one for the February-March Flash contest.
Flash is a story of 1000 words or less. Anotherealm is a website of Science Fiction (SF), Fantasy and Horror.
Anotherealm is the first place I ever posted a story on-line and the first place I ever wrote a flash piece for. It was also the first place I ever actually SOLD a story to. It was a Lovecraftian horror story called, "Alone."
The June-July contest was to write a flash story with Tourists as the prompt. My story for the contest was called, "So Many Shades of Black" and it was a fantasy piece.
The February-March contest had the prompt of Microbial Small. My story, "A Little Dominance" is a SF story set in Howlina, the island nation I created here on Illini6. The story was very heavily influenced by Blue Oyster Cult's "Dominance and Submission."
Go read it and please comment, here, there and everywhere.
