Oh, yes, the Old Soldier believes that there is definitely a flash fiction state of mind. This state of mind helps a writer to identify real life situations as potential flash fiction short stories.
First, the situation can only cover a limited time frame. And secondly, the situation must be significant in some sort of way. By significant I mean the situation must say something about a character or his or her situation or it must capture the moment when the character or the character’s situation is different from when the story began.
Yes, there is such a thing as a flash fiction state of mind. Do you have a flash fiction state of mind?
Hello hello hello, all my brother and sister bloggers, readers, writers and my Flash Fiction Fanatics!
It’s going to be a sunny, hot (84) day in Pittsburgh today. And when I checked my stats this morning the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette had over 15,000 hits for the month of August. You can’t beat that with a stick!
There are only a few days left to get your submissions in for September. I have two guest writers that I’m going to publish the first week of September and I could use one more. Be sure to read and follow the guidelines. This is a paying market.
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is an online magazine of creative ideas, serious writing and brazen sexuality.
