Flash Fiction success
Excitement, excitement. I was lying in bed composing words in my head the other night (as you do) and I had an idea for a short piece of writing. I should have written it down but I hoped I'd remember it by morning (strangely I often can) so when I got up I wrote it down. It had to be 75 words exactly for submitting to Paragraph Planet. Believe it or not I didn't have enough words! I expanded it and hey-presto I sent it off. Within a couple of days I had a reply and.....yes, they have published it on their website. I am so thrilled as this is the first flash fiction piece I have ever had published (and to be honest I have rarely written flash fiction but this is something I want to do more of). This was one of those that 'wrote itself'. I don't even know where the idea came from. I wish writing always went that way but it's back to the graft now.
