FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
My post tonight is called Keeping It Brief and this refers, not just to flash fiction, but to the importance of telling the story and then stopping. Don’t ramble. Don’t let your characters ramble either.
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
In Short and Sweet or Not as the Case May Be, I discuss the moods of my flash fiction pieces. I also discuss why I found Jo and Amy in Little Women easier to identify with than saintly Beth. Ilike my characters flawed and always found Beth a little too sweet.
Talking of short fictional creations, tonight’s post on my author page links to my current Chandler’s Ford Today post and talks about flash fiction.

Tonight’s post – Flash Fiction, What Is It? – is part 1 of a 2 parter with the second half due to appear on site tomorrow night. Tonight’s post explores what flash fiction is and I share one of my published pieces as an example. Tomorrow’s post will talk about my flash fiction book deal (exciting times!) and also reveal some of what is on my writing desk and the ultimate trigger for my writing at all.
