MWC Flash Fiction Contest Results

I am pleased to announce that the winner of the myWritersCircle Prize Flash Fiction Contest, announced in this blog post, was New Science by Two9a (real name Imran).

To remind you, entrants in this free contest had to write a short story in exactly 100 words with a beginning, middle and an end, and incorporating three specific words (portico, starfish and approbation).

Here is Imran's Winning Entry...

New Science
When approbation was finally given for the project, Ryan was immediately ready to put together the prototype. Just two weeks later, the team met in the portico of University College, to witness the results.

Ryan explained that, for testing purposes, the subject would be a starfish from the Bond Street aquarium. He wheeled the laser in, and fired; the starfish promptly vanished.

"I thought you were demonstrating levitation to six feet, Dr Ryan," said one of his assistants, as they gathered over a star-shaped hole in the pavement.

"The laser must be upside down; give me a minute," Ryan answered.
Many congratulations to Imran, who wins a copy of my new course, The 10-Day E-Book.

There were 25 entries in all, and the standard was generally very high. You can read all of the stories submitted in this forum topic. The two runners-up (and the winner) are in the topic itself, and all the others can be viewed in the attached Word document.

Thank you to everyone who supported this contest, including the moderator team who judged it, and commiserations to those who didn't win on this occasion.

Watch out for more prize contests on myWritersCircle, the web's friendliest writers forum, coming soon!
