2020-Flash-01 – “Resilience”

Resilience can be defined as the capacity to quickly recover from challenging circumstances.  At this time of global uncertainty, even the simplest daily tasks require a skilled balancing act. 
For our first “Flash Fiction” contest, we invite you to write a story that features resilience.  What difficulties will you set up for your characters? How will they recover from their challenges?  Fiction is a great way to express yourself, and come up with possible solutions and unimagined paths. 
Inspire us!

Include some reference to the concept of resilience.

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
