The July Challenge is our annual Fixed-Length-Ficlet Challenge, and will have the theme "Time in a Bottle", which means memories you would like to keep. The element will be a number between 101 and 400. Interested authors can reply to this announcement and claim a number. No one will be allowed to have a number previously claimed. Whatever number is chosen will be the word count for your ficlet-- if you choose 237 your story must have exactly 237 words!
The July challenge stories will be due Sunday, July 14th and will be revealed on Tuesday, July 16th. Please tag your story "time in a bottle" and " '13 july". Please remember to use the header template on the community profile page, and to put the name of your story and your name in the subject line (e.g. "Frodo's Amazing Adventure by Mary Sue").
You have only to comment with your number here, that will be your element; do not choose a number someone else has selected.
I hope we'll have lots of participants for our July challenge!
