#zapfic contest (week 32): win SteemBasicIncome, upvotes and resteems!

in zapfic •  last year 

ZAPFIC returns! More zap and more fic *

*just without the hassle of zappl!

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*.

Use a word/character counter like this free one (https://wordcounter.net/) to check your character count!
*Why 240 characters? Well originally it was posted to the steemit blockchain using the app “zappl”, but that app has been on an extended holiday, and we can't hang around for ever... so now no more hassle with zappl! You can post your #zapfic however you want!

Last week’s entries!

Thank you to the runners up, your stories were really great too!

#zapfic Writing Contest Week 30:

Write a story - inspired by the prompt - in 240 characters.
No restrictions on how you post it to steemit. You can post it to steemit using steemit.com, partiko or anything else you want to use!
Try to ensure you tell as complete a story as you can.

This weeks prompt is : training

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

  • Post the 240 character (or less) story to steemit (use whatever you want - steemit.com, busy, partiko,etc - the choice is yours!
  • It must contain the hashtag #zapfic
  • The story must be less than 240 characters long - 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  • The story must be your own work, and previously unpublished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) it must be yours (not taken from the net).
  • Resteem and upvote welcome but it is not essential (I am operating this contest at a “loss” to give something back to the community, so if you can resteem and upvote it will help me help you!)
  • The steemit (or busy, or whatever) link to your post must be left in the comment section of this post
  • The deadline for submissions is the payout of this post
  • The judge’s decision is final


The price pool 3 SBI (#steembasicincome share), to be distributed as follows

1 @steembasicincome share will be given to the top three stories (as judged by me)

All valid entries will receive a 100% upvote (approx $0.12 at the time of posting) and a resteem from the judge (@felt.buzz) to over 1000 followers.
Sometimes I may give away bonus prizes too.
Note: this contest was invented by and is hosted, judged and run by @Felt.Buzz. it has bugger all to do with zappl

Please take note of the rule (above) regarding images with your post. If you post a photo, or other image, it MUST be your own. If you found it on the internet you must NOT use it. You do not get bonus points for using an image (this contest is about the images you create with words).

If you found the image on the web, I will be able to reverse image search and find the original too. So use no image or your own!
Thank you! and good luck!

Training The New Recruit

"And Lift!"

The sheet arched over their fluffy backs, cresting their heads.

"Now hold!"

Soft light filtered through the duvet, blurred the edges of shadows.

"And brace for the cuddle!"

Plush paws dug in, furry faces beamed with welcome comfort.

Love it! :)

Congrats to the winners!

I'll try to think of something - after days relaxing on a beach I'm cramped in a bus. Crafting a short story might just help my mental state.

Can I enter in the form of a comment?

Of course! :)
