Writers, write about what you know! You don’t have to make up fantastic situations full of strange characters in order to write good flash fiction. Just write about the things you have done and the kinds of people who you know.
Let’s use the Old Soldier as an example. I write about veterans. Guess what? The Old Soldier is a Vietnam War veteran. My flash fiction is full of people who like to drink. Guess what? The Old Soldier loves his beer. My flash fiction is full of college students. The Old Soldier has been a college student most of his adult life.
Okay, here’s a tough one. Some of my protagonists are women doing their first online adult videos. Do I know any women who have done an online adult video? (My niece Brianna Frost Hogan doesn’t count. I haven’t talked to her in over ten years.)
Brianna Frost Hogan
No, I do not know any women who have done an online adult video. But I do subscribe to an online adult video website.
My brother and sister flash fiction writers, write about what you know.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is an online magazine of serious writing and brazen sexuality. Be sure to check the front page for the latest updates.

On April 16, 2012 the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette got 514 hits from readers all over the world. What is the excitement all about?
Photos of naked women is certainly one reason.
But there are millions of blogs that have photos of naked women. Great flash fiction is one reason; but there are thousands of blogs about flash fiction.
What these other blogs do not have is the unique blend of articles, sexology, commentaries and fiction that you find here at the PFFG. Then add to all of this a place where poets, non-fiction writers and fiction writers can submit their work for publication and be paid for their work and I think you begin to understand why the PFFG got 514 hits on the 16th of this month and why it is being read by more and more people every month.
Explore the site and welcome to the most dynamic flash fiction publication on the Internet.
Keep reading and keep writing that flash fiction.
Read. Study. Write. Submit.
