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 111:

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

Deadline: Has Passed

No restrictions on how you post it to the HIVE blockchain. But if you post to the Freewriters Community you will get a reblog and upvote from the @freewritehouse plus an upvote from the hive-161155 account!

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

This weeks prompt is :


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


  • Post the 240 character (or less) story to HIVE

  • The story must be no more than 240 characters in length (NOT WORDS) - use a character counter to check (here is one: https://wordcounter.net/). If your story has more than 240 characters it will NOT be considered a #ZapFic

  • The story must be your own work, and previously unpublished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

  • Reblog and upvote welcome but it is not essential

  • The link to your post must be left in the comment section of this post

  • The deadline for submissions has PASSED

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


The price pool 6 SBI and 30% of author rewards of this post will be distributed as follows

2 HIVE-SBI shares PLUS each of the 3 winners will be added as a 10% beneficiary of next week’s Zapfic post (10% of the author rewards each)

All valid entries will receive a 50% upvote from my felt.buzz account (extra upvotes available if you post to the Freewriters Community)

Congratulations to all the winners. I don't see my name in the list of the entries of the week @felt.buzz

Sorry! I sometimes see the entry (and upvote it and reblog it). But the link needs to be posted on the contest comments to be valid (because it is a lot of work to find all the entries for judging!). Thank you! :)

Don't worry, it was surely my fault. I already put my llink in the link of the post. Thank you very much friend @felt.buzz

It happened so many times to me when we do t leave oor link under the contest blog. 😉 got to have them here so feltbuzz won't have to search

This time I made the publication in the community and left my link in the publication of the contest. I think now he will see me. Thanks @brittandjosie.
