What is #zapfic? Well I was the first to use the hashtag, so I guess I invented it, and I get to decide what it means.

#zapfic is a very short story written in less than 240 characters*.

#zapfic Writing Contest Week 82:

Write a story - inspired by the prompt - in 240 characters.

You have less time to post your Zapfic than usual!

I need to reset the contest to Tuesday because otherwise it messes with my head!

Deadline: Tuesday 5th November 9am (Paris Time)

(Sorry, you are too late to enter this contest - deadline has passed - go to my blog and check out the latest prompt!)

No restrictions on how you post it to the steem blockchain. You can post it to steemit using steempeak, palnet.io, steemit.com, busy, partiko or anything else you want to use (you can even just post a story in the comments - but if you create STEEM post for your ZAPFIC using the hashtags #palnet, #creativecoin, #neoxian or #marlians) you’ll get a 50% upvote in STEEM plus upvotes from each my Tribe accounts too)!

Try to ensure you tell as complete a story as you can.

This weeks prompt is : cancel

You can interpret the prompt as you wish (the story does NOT have to contain the word “cancel” in it)

As well as Steem upvotes I upvote posts in the following Tribes: #leo, #palnet, #sports, #weed, #marlians and #creativecoin #neoxian #sonicgroove


@felt.buzz curation accounts: @felt.buzz.pal @felt.buzz.leo @felt.buzz.sports @felt.buzz.weed @felt.buzz.marl @felt.buzz.ccc @felt.buzz.neox @felt.buzz.sonicgroove

For #zapfic posts I advise using the tags #creativecoin, #neoxian, #palnet, #marlians (if you post using steempeak you can use up to 10 tags)


  • Post the 240 character (or less) story to steemit (use whatever you want - steempeak, steemit.com, busy, partiko, or even as a comment! etc - the choice is yours!

  • Use the following hashtags (so you can benefit from my upvotes from the tribe accounts): #palnet, #creativecoin, #marlians. I can upvote you with four different accounts - so if you use those three hashtags you'll earn the tokens pal, marlians and ccc as well as Steem)

  • The story must be no more than 240 characters in length - use a character counter to check (here is one: https://wordcounter.net/)

  • The story must be your own work, and previously unpublished

  • If you post a photo (you don't have to, there are no "points" for photos, it is all about the story) please make sure you quote the source. If it is yours, say so!

  • Resteem and upvote welcome but it is not essential

  • The steemit (or busy, or whatever) link to your post must be left in the comment section of this post

  • The deadline for submissions has passed

Sorry, you are too late to enter this contest - deadline has passed - go to my blog and check out the latest prompt!

  • The judge’s decision is final (including what constitutes a valid entry)


The price pool 6 SBI (#steembasicincome share), 100 Marlians, 100 CCC (creativecoincrypto), 15% of author rewards of this post will be distributed as follows

2 @steembasicincome shares, 10 Marlians and 10 CCC will be given to writers of the top three stories (as judged by me) PLUS each of the 3 winners will be added as a 5% beneficiary of THIS post (5% of the author rewards each)

The rest of the prize pool (70 marlians, 70 CCC) will be divided amongst all the valid entries

All valid entries will receive a 50% upvote from my felt.buzz account plus if you use the tags #palnet, #marlians, #ccc and #neoxian you will receive an upvote from my tribe curation accounts (@felt.buzz.pal, @felt.buzz.marl, @felt.buzz.ccc and @felt.buzz.neox), and a resteem from @felt.buzz) to over 1450 followers.

Thank you very much

Am very very grateful for this, forever grateful.


You deserved it. You have a wonderful way of phrasing things. The title "Down with Don" is great and the last sentence ending with "growled to death" is excellent

Thanks for your entry!

Oh wow, thanks @felt.buzz! 😊 😊
