Let’s not call it writer’s block. But there are times when a writer has to recharge his or her imaginative batteries.
I’s the Old Soldier here with another issue of the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, the most fun reading you can find in a publication that deals with flash fiction.
How’s everyone doing?
It’s around noon in Pittsburgh. The high will be 85 on a lovely, sunny day. I haven’t been out yet. I want to get this post up first. So far I’ve had three cans of beer, a fish sandwich with lots of hot sauce and I’ve watched Face The Nation and some other Sunday news show on television about the 2012 American presidential election, the Euro crisis and Facebook’s IPO (Initial Public Offering).

What does any of this have to do with writing flash fiction?
Well, a flash fiction writer does not live in a vacuum. So, it has a lot to do with writing flash fiction. But a writer’s personal life (family, friends, job, school and significant other) has even more to do with his or her flash fiction.
The Old Soldier would like to leave you with this: live your life to the fullest. That’s the best way to recharge your creative batteries. That way, you’ll have something to write about.
