Hey lovely readers, how’s everyone doing? As always I hope you’re well and that the midweek has met you with nothing but sugar-coated awesome ^_^.
Since I began posting flash fiction every other day on my Facebook Fan Page’, there’s been interest from others to share their own. Here’s a Guest Flash Fiction piece from my good friend Joseph @zveeravalli’, who emailed me this one – complete with his picture of choice – just a couple days ago :):
~ She knelt and placed her tray on the floor as the rumbling began.
“Finally, looks like we’re moving.” Her friend murmured. ~
Why do I love flash so much? Well, I discovered it quite by accident really and thought it was the coolest thing that you could tell stories in just a couple lines, or a simple paragraph. Additionally, I love the way it hones your skills, as you have to pack a lot into a small punch, as opposed to longer lengths where there is more time to describe scenes, characters and so on. In summary, it can be an amazing help to writers making it one of my ‘writerly’ go-to heroes for sure ^_^.
Here’s one of my latest sci-fi flash pieces via my Facebook page:
~ Francis hated Bantor Dome, the rancid scent of rotting flesh, and dirty children scurrying underfoot. He looked to the other domes, longing for things he knew he could not have, their beauty and placement commanding respect for their residents that Francis knew he would never experience. He slit his throat. ~
Do you enjoy reading or writing flash stories? If so, feel free to share your own, recommend stories you’ve enjoyed or tell me why you like it, in the comments section below :). Until Friday ^_^!
Please note: After a break the beginning of Chapter 16: Glamorous Lies, will be posted on ‘Jackie Jones on Wattpad.’. Look out for the Awakening Character Guide soon and catch up with the story using the link above, as with only FIVE chapters left, you’ll want to catch up ^_^.
