I’m excited. Today my first flash fiction piece went live! Please read SLAM and leave a comment if so moved.
You know how it is: the writer is the one who’s always taking notes — the one for whom everything is material. You know this because you’re one of us.
The spark for this story rose out of an actual experience. My inadequate response to an uncomfortable situation forced me to reflect deeply on my relationship with the world and with those I perceive, despite my talk to the contrary, as not me. Reflection meant writing my way through it, trying on other points of view, exploring the sometimes messy business of being human — of judging and distancing and forgetting.
What do you have to say about your experience with the world? How might flash fiction work for you as a writer? (Check out my August posting about flash fiction.)
Your comment will appear below shortly after posting it. Please don’t hold back. Let’s have a conversation.
As Jean Luc Picard would say, “Engage!”
