For those of you interested in writing flash fiction, this suggestion will definitely help.
Hello, Pitt Panthers and my Flash Fiction Fanatics. How many of you are writers? How many of you who are writers have thought about writing flash fiction. Well, as you can see there are all kinds of flash fiction stories on this blog. There are love stories, stories about husbands and wives and boyfriends and girlfriends and stories about lesbians and stories about war, college, orgies and gang bangs.
As a graduate student, I taught undergraduates at the University of Pittsburgh from 2004 – 2006. I had a definite teaching philosophy. Looking back, there are a few things that I would have changed but I think my basic approach was the right one: keep it simple.
Even though I tried to get across the nuances of the “show don’t tell” technique of writing fiction I tried to do it in a straight forward, clear way.
So, if you write flash fiction or are thinking about trying to write flash fiction keep this in mind: A flash fiction story captures a significant moment in time.
Nothing more, nothing less.
