Contests Ending in December or Thereabouts

I've compiled some contests that are ending soon. I'm sure there are more, but since I just started this blog last week, this is all I've had time to cull together! I'm hoping to make this a monthly thing, towards the end of each month. It should give you just enough time to experience the panic that is associated with completing deadline-driven tasks, but also enough time to possibly complete these tasks.

I endorse none of these contests. Nor do I gain anything by you clicking on them. You are strictly left to your own judgement regarding the goodness and worthwhile-ness of each of these contests. I have enough time to inform, but unfortunately not enough time to investigate.

That being said, if you run across a particularly nasty person and/or company, let me know and I'll look into it.

Good luck! If I find more, I'll update this post for now, and post a notice on Twitter @FlashFicStories.
