There’s a new story on the flash-fiction page called “The Accomplishment.” It was done for a contest and is only 3 sentences long (as per the rules). I’m not all that happy with it, but it is what it is. See for yourself and feel free to comment/critique/ ridicule.

I just posted my second flash-fiction, “Animals On Display,” as part of a contest over on Chuck Wendig’s blog Terrible Minds. This one had to use the words “zoo, milkshake, heretic, and bully.” I just started writing and this is what came out in about 30 minutes. Not the best, but not the worst. Still, it’s a new frontier. This one’s about two children, a street preacher and a zoo.
My 1st short story Crossing Off the List has just been published to the newly minted Flash-Fiction section above. Check it out!
A few words about Flash-fiction. Flash-fiction, to me at least, is when you sit down and write something in one sitting, usually no more than 1000 to 1500 words. That’s exactly what I did with this one. These works are often prompted by a central blog (example: “Write a story where blue gerbils are the main characters”) or are a one-off thing I’m just trying to get out of my head. In the future, I’ll be holding flash-fiction contests…..way in the future.
