When I first heard about flash fiction, maybe four years ago now, I wondered how on Earth it could be possible to tell a whole story in just 1,000 words or thereabouts. Intrigued by the challenge, especially to a writer like me who has no problem blathering on and on, I soon became obsessed.
Flash forward to the present day, and I'm so happy and honored to share that my 100-word story "Ze Crab", a response to an ekphrastic photo challenge, was published today at my favorite micro fiction site edited by Grant Faulkner. Please check it out here.
What did you see in that picture of a starry night?
Juggling two kids (or in this case one toddler and an unmentioned, but very subtextual, pregnancy), two dogs, and one household can leave little time for writing. This piece explores my attempt to implement the more regimented approach to writing, and why that approach doesn't necessarily always work for working mommies... Speaking of which, the baby is screaming bloody murder from his bounceroo and my toddler is flinging yoghurt from her chair. Gotta run!
Thanks for checking it out!
