Happy New Year 2019!
To Celebrate the New Year, I will begin to post Flash Fiction stories here on my blog! I started this blog to talk about the fantasy reading and writing world, and I realize I haven’t touched too much on the writing aspect. Some of that will change as I begin to share some of my stories on here.
Flash Fiction for me is the next step up the writing ladder from my start in writing Fan Fiction. Just a few letters different, they have alot of similarities. Many of them come from a prompt – sometimes as simple as “What if?”
For me, this will be an excercise in adding detail. As a fanfiction writer, I take advantage of the fact that my readers know exactly what I’m talking about. Now, I will have to help my readers “see” my world, meaning I can’t just jump from action scene to action scene.
Hopefully, this practice will help prepare me to draft a full length novel!
I’ll be taking prompts from my Writer’s Digest 2019 Daily Calendar, as well as other prompts that come across my path. I’m working on a stash to ward against the days when they come out awful!
I will continue to do other posts on reading, favorite stories, or just whatever else strikes my fancy, earlier in the week as well.
For now, goodbye until Friday!
