The Old Soldier wants to make an intellectual statement. But don’t worry. I’ll keep it short.
Life is chaotic. Often times things happen in life that make no sense. Life can be very confusing.
It is because of the unpredictability of life that we turn to art. Art is just one of the ways we humans try to impose meaning and order on the chaos of life.
We use art to explain the unexplainable.
So, when you read or write a flash fiction short story, you are not wasting your time.
You are really longing for the mysterious power of art.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is an online magazine of serious writing and brazen sexuality. It is also a paying market.
