Welcome to Flash Fiction Month, day 20.


After a day of hectic collabing, we are sure it's time for a slower pace, a break. Maybe take the time to agonize over how few days are left in the month. Or, instead lament your slow (or not so slow!) loss of sanity from the challenges. Whatever you choose, perhaps do your mourning with our optional theme, funerals.


Instructions


Flash Fiction Month is about writing – and posting – a story between 55-1000 words in length every day during July. Each day we'll upload a deviation where you can post your story for the day, with optional prompts, themes, and the occasional challenge.

Paste a link to your flash fiction piece for July 20 in the comments below.

If you write a story every day this month, and complete every challenge, you might be eligible to win something, and you'll certainly get a whiter smile, be invited to more parties and improve your literary vigour.


Reminders


Everyone needs encouragement from time to timeRemember to support your fellow flashers (and be supported in kind) by reading and commenting on a story every day. A little support goes a long way, and keeps the flash fiction spectres at bay.

Remember to have fun! Generate inspiration for your insatiable muse via the 2018 Prompt Generator. Procrastinate to your hearts content by submitting prompts to the voracious beast that is the 2018 Prompt Bank. Or join us on the FFM Discord Channel for much camaraderie, merriment, and making of terrible, terrible puns.

If you still haven't signed up for thirty-one days of fiendish fun, flashing, and fiction, you can still learn about Flash Fiction Month here, and sign up here. After all, it's never too late to make questionable life choices!

A Guide to Self Harm
What is self harm? Self harm/Self Injury (SH/SI) is when an individual causes harm or inflicts injuries to their body deliberately. The most common forms of self harm include cutting yourself, burning, or hitting yourself or other objects to cause pain to yourself, pulling out hair and overdosing on tablets. It’s a common misunderstanding that self harmers are suicidal and this is not always the case!! Self harm is not always related to suicidal feelings but there are some self harmers who self harm as a way to stop themselves killing themselves but there’s other self harmers who self harm to NOT kill themselves and are not relate

Super hero-villain Creator
This is one way you can create a hero, villain, or sidekick. A freeware system I created, you can use it if you want; you can skip a step, do them in whatever order you please, or completely ignore it: knock yourself out. Step 1: An idea Think a general idea for your superhero/villain: it could be an alter ego,  power, just anywhere you can start from, and build the hero around this core idea. Step 2: Origins How did your person become a hero/villain/sidekick? was she/he born with special powers? Did he/she get them in later life? Or is he/she simply a regular person who decided to do some good/evil? Whether there are super powers or no,

Brony Advice: Your Questions Answered #79, 80, 81!
#79) As a woman should I be worried that the people that run our fandom are guys primarily (example: Equestria Daily)? I must say I was a bit offended when I saw sexualized ponies getting featured. Answer: This is a fantastic question, because it's so multi-faceted and it raises genuine points about larger issues that exist in society. Despite feminism and suffrage, and policies that increasingly purport to grant women greater levels of equality, women are still marginalized in a lot of circumstances. It's fair to say that Equestria Daily is a male-run website. You have the occasional female admin (Phoe springs to mind) but naturally, Sethi
