So here’s how today is supposed to work. I’ve taken the boys to holiday club and I have a day off. Therefore I will be writing. Today is (of course) Flash! Friday, so I have ideas for a story pinging round my head. Friday is also Faber Academy’s QuickFic day, so at 9.50 I’ll be checking the prompt for that. I have ideas for two stories for the FlashDogs anthology 2, which I definitely need to get on with, so the prompts are open in front of me. And by a strange coincidence it’s writers’ group tonight.
What have I been doing? Reading.
Today Flash Flood, the National Flash Fiction Day journal, is publishing a new flash fiction story every 10 minutes or so. I’ve just gone back to the site and read another one. I read 5 this morning with my cup of tea. Then I saw a few names that I know, so I read theirs too…you can see how this is going!
So if you like flash fiction, head on over to Flash Flood and have a read. Just don’t expect to get anything done for the rest of the day! I’m on at around 9pm BST, by the way. See you there!
