Flashathon 2: Electric Boogaloo. Ah sequels. They’re often pale immitators of the original, cynically produced in a hopes of cashing in on ongoing popularity. Sometimes they take ideas and expand on them, grow them into something bigger and better.
Here’s hoping for the latter as we get into Flashathon 2012.
The details are sparse right now. Right now we’re aiming for October 27, 2012 as our date. This is a little later than last year, but still falls in that magic zone between Capclave and Nanowrimo. We’re changing up the hours, however. The idea will be for the event to include 18 hourly prompts instead of 12. Oh, don’t worry, the goal of the event will still be the production of 12 original short stories, this will instead allow participants to decide what hours work best for them. And while the emphasis will still be on completing 12 consecutive hours, it also allows for an hour off for meals, or a mulligan when the creative juices just aren’t there. If we do 18 hours, they will run from 9am-3am Eastern Time (6am-midnight Pacific Time).
Keep checking this page for more details on the event as I have them!
And always watch the skies!
