One of my difficulties is getting back into the groove after a long writing layoff.
Especially when that layoff occurs in the middle of the story.
It’s difficult to leap back into the jumble of emotions which found their way onto the page when you’ve been separated from those specific emotions for a while.
So, I’m going to attempt to jump start some creativity with a short story.
No, my story doesn’t begin with “It was a dark and stormy night”.
It will be flash fiction 🙂
Short, sweet, and fun.
Enough to get the juices flowing so I can return to my main project with a sharp sword…err pen.
And I know no better way to hone one’s skills than writing flash fiction. There’s no room for error in a piece this short. Every word counts.
As it should be in any length of fiction. So, wish me success. Off to Mander-land I go!
