This morning, I found out from author Saladin Ahmed this morning that it’s National Flash Fiction Day. He posted a link to his flash fiction piece which debuted on Strange Horizons called Doctor Diablo Goes Through the Motions.
I really like flash fiction because it allows me to sharpen my plots and prose in a confined space. When I’m short on time, it also forces me to stay grounded and focused, too. I’ve written a “few” pieces over the years for myself, publishers, and readers. In recent memory, the piece that I wrote titled The Message was a ton of fun. I enjoy secret codes and hidden messages and hope you will, too. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a good mystery. 🙂
Hope you get the chance to enjoy National Flash Fiction Day! If you’ve got a favorite piece out there, whether it’s yours or something someone else wrote, feel free to add a link to it in the comments below.
