This is only a brief post, and that is perhaps apt. For today one of the things I want to tell you about is the imminent National Flash Fiction Day.
NFFD 2017 is happening this Saturday, the 24th, celebrating the small and succinct writing art form that is flash fiction. With a whole programme of events, an anthology to buy, and heaps of flash fiction to read, there is something for everyone to get involved with.
And, with my occasional writer’s hat on (it’s the slightly dusty one I keep in the cupboard), I am pleased to announce that I have a flash fiction included in this year’s Flash Flood, the 24-hour flash fiction extravaganza that will be found here. My tiny tale is slightly silly (read: very silly) and is called It’s My Story And I’ll Tell It How I Want To. It will be published on the Flash Flood site sometime between 12:00 and 13:00 BST.
I, however, will not be able to read it with my Saturday lunch, for I will be busy elsewhere. Where? you may ask… (more…)
