Rediscovering Flash Fiction
For the past few days, I have been rediscovering flash fiction.
For a writer in recovery, there couldn’t be a better place to start. The prompts are original and entertaining. And, a crucial point, the length restriction makes it easier to finish writing the story in one sitting — right before self-doubt can kick in.
I know I will eventually need to gradually stretch my comfort zone and regain the confidence to work on longer stories, but I’m taking it slow this time. I don’t want to overextend myself and end up in a rut again.
Most important of all, I’m having fun.
