She knew she shouldn’t have worn it. But she needed to see if she could dance in it. Well, she certainly had her answer. But the question now was what to do? Her instructor called her attention back to the task at hand, the international rumba routine for the show. She had lots of dips and sexy poses with new arm styling. How was she going to manage with this stupid strapless bra hanging just under her breasts? She looked like a cow with her udder exposed. Strange no one seemed to notice her dilemma.
“Just a sec,” she said as she turned away from the wall of mirrors. Quickly, she thrust her hands under the folds of her magenta tunic with the crocheted straps and pulled the offending bra down. She stepped out of it and tossed it on the nearest table then raced back to her instructor.
She missed the shocked look of the new female instructor teaching on the other side of the studio. Her instructor, a seasoned pro, only smiled while they both tried to ignore her husband’s jaw, which had dropped to the floor.
“Okay,” she said. “Shall we take it from the top?”

It is my experience as a teacher and an editor that the writing of the short story cannot be taught. Here’s my reasoning. An instructor can give a writer examples, guidelines and definitions; but the actual mixture of personal experience, talent, dedication and perseverance that is needed to become good at writing stories can only come from the writer.
Writing cannot be taught. It can only be learned.
Well, I haven’t taken my walk yet so it’s time. The sun is still brightly shinning and I’ll take my small notebook with me in case I’m struck with an idea to blog about. Anyway, I’m out of green tea.
Flash fiction captures a significant moment in time and gives it closure. Closure can be a change in direction, an epiphany or a summation.
PS: There are a lot of mainstream, literary and erotic stories on this blog but there is only one porn story. “A Porn Star Is Born” is at the top of the page.

I went to computer school for one year. The school taught students how to use the computer in an office situation. I retired before using my newly acquired computer skills; but there was one saying by an instructor that has stayed with me. “Garbage in garbage out.”
This is a good saying for writers, too.
Here you will find some good writing and some good advice about writing. And as an editor, I want to work with writers to get them published in this publication which is about blogging, sexuality, writing and flash fiction. It is especially about flash fiction.
PS: There are alot of mainstream, literary and erotic stories on this blog but there is only one flash fiction porn story available. “A Porn Star Is Born” is at the top of the page.
