3 GGP Challenges You Can't Ignore
Who doesn't like challenges? Nobody, that's who. So, in honor of Nobody, I thought I'd take a little time out of my bizzy day to point you to three currently running @gardengnomepubs challenges you absolutely have to get into (like a tight pair of jeans).
Two of these challenges are contests, and one of them is an exercise. A writing exercise, to be exact. Ready? Let's rhumba.
Regular readers know I've gone all out to bring writers together for some of the most challenging and entertaining exercises known to man. Of course, I'm being humble. Because, one night in Bangkok, and all that.
Writers sign up, an assigned order is doled out by the master garden gnome (no one knows his true name, but people call him Fenrir), and then they start writing. In succession. Each writer writes a leg of the story and disobeys all the rules prescribed by Fenrir until he stomps his feet and pisses on the shared parade.
It's great fun.
You can sign up over here. Do so quickly. Fenrir doesn't like late comers.

Flash Fiction Prompt
Is it a prompt or a contest? It's both. A contest based on a prompt. Genre: Speculative fiction.
Here's the image prompt:

The winner receives 2 Steem Basic Income. Deadline is 11:59 p.m. EST on April 1, 2019.
That's not a lot of time to write a post and publish it, so get on the stick. 500 word limit. You can do that with your eyes closed.
