Lately I've been hearing a lot about Flash Fiction, Speculative Fiction, Short Stories etc. A few posts ago I mentioned how wings were popping up everywhere in my life. I've also felt like the past couple weeks have been quite the emotional roller coaster ride. And I know some of my writer/blogger friends have been going through similar feelings. I decided to combine all of those Universal recurrences.
Now you're learning about how I write. I notice, I watch, I listen, I analyze (then I over analyze), and usually whilst driving, showering, or making my flavored coffee(belgian Choc toffee today) I create a story in my head. Then I try to type it out on my computer and pray I don't murder it with bad grammar, punctuation errors, and simile over-usage. (I'm sure I did that in the story below--but this was for fun so I'm not stressing over it.)
Yesterday I decided to take my first attempt at a short story. Flash Fiction Online has requirements of 1,000 words or less so I followed their guidelines. Let me know what you think. But be gentle, it's my first attempt.
