Member-Sponsored Feel Good Flash Contest
The name says it all: I want stories that make me feel good!
Ever notice how on your daily news shows, no matter what kind of horrific stories they have covered that day, they seem to always end with some “feel good” news segment? That's because those kinds of stories are the ones that keep us going even when everything around us feels bad.
I realize “good” is subjective and can mean something different for each person, so I'll clarify: I want to feel happy, inspired, satisfied, euphoric. I want to read stories that make me walk around with a smile on my face. Your story doesn't necessarily have to have a “happily ever after,” nor does everything need to be coming up roses—and I’m not looking for purple prose. It's more like, when I'm finished with the story I want to feel … hopeful.
All genres are welcome!
