You know, I’ve never written flash fiction before. But then I saw this blog from Caroline Smailes, and this blog by the Were-Traveler, and thought, well, why not give it a try? It’s a real test of both writing and editing skills – writing, because you have to tell a whole story in minimal words, and editing, because even my shortest story was double the required word count.
As someone who normally writes romance, doing the tale of that gone wrong was a fun challenge, and I’m proud to say that I got the word count exactly right – 100 words, as counted by Scribendi.
It’s not published here so I don’t jeopardise my chances of it being picked up, but wish me luck!
