One Last Tale

"One Last Tale" is the third piece I've had accepted on Please let me know if you enjoy it!

The site is full of (yep, you guessed it) stories that are exactly 50 words long. It's a real challenge to write them. And it's fun!

'Bedtime Stories' by Richard S. Johnson

Added bonus: Here's an interesting article by Bob Thurber (master of the art) about how to write a compelling piece of flash fiction.

Improvising (Twitter Fiction!)

Twitter fiction is fun! It's quite a challenge to squash a story into 140 characters. I've been creating stories on my "Very Short Story" twitter feed and one of them won a competition to be made into a video. There's even an interview too!

The site has published one of my flash fictions! It's called Thrown and it's my second attempt at playing with the idea of a "melting angel" theme. (The first attempt is currently sitting hopefully in the submission queue for the Bridport prize!) I'm not sure what it is about melting angels, but for some reason the image seems to have stuck with me. Maybe that's something I should mention at my next therapy session?!
