Some Of My Old Amateur Photography
Hello, bloggers, writers and my Flash Fiction Fanatics. You know the Old Soldier sometimes gets so involved trying to make money as an online writer that he forgets about his own blog. Well, not really forget about but certainly spends more time here: Triond, than he does at his own blog, the most dynamic flash fiction publication on the internet.
This morning I published an article on Triond. It included a micro-story. I don’t know how many words it is. I’m publishing it in this post. You can count the words; but it is very, very short. One of the shortest stories I have ever written.
Still, it is not a sketch or a vignette, but a complete short story. A flash fiction story is a significant event with closure.
The significant event in this story is one of the more difficult kinds of stories to write. It is an epiphany (realization) story; but it is the reader who has the epiphany. And the epiphany is, the reader realizes what kind of marriage this man and woman have.
The story is so short that I do not want to give anything away by giving it a title.
What else do I want to say in this post?
Keep reading and keep writing and if you are a writer read the submissions guide lines at the top of the page and send me something.
He lay naked under the sheet. She stood naked in front of the long mirror, turning this way and that way looking at her reflection.
He said, Did you have an orgasm?
Couldn’t you tell?
Men can’t always tell when a woman has an orgasm.
Honey, am I getting fat?
I think your breasts are larger.
Still looking at her reflection she laughed and said, You’re a wonderful husband.
He said, And smart, too.
