It's July, and that means it's time for our annual Fixed-Length-Ficlet Challenge! The July Challenge will have will have the theme "Family Reunion". 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 in the queue by Friday, July 15th and will be revealed on Monday, July 18th. Please tag your story "challenge: family reunion", "flf" and "month: 2016 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. You will not need to wait for a prompt.
I hope we'll have lots of participants for our July challenge!
