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?
Very grateful to the editors at The Lascaux Review for nominating "My Own Struggle, Or an Exercise in Autofiction" for The Pushcart Prize. I'm also grateful to my editor and friend, Camille Griep at Easy Street Magazine, for suggesting I write about one of those cooped-up snow days with a toddler and a puppy that I'd been whining about so much. You can read the essay here.
