When not working on my novels I write Flash Fiction. Very short stories, usually less than 1,000 words. Some are micro-fiction, about 100 words. It must be a complete story.
Writing flash teaches one to measure every single word to determine it’s worth to the story. It is an excellent learning process.
With the pandemic going on, many writers are turning out stories about dealing with this virus, the economic collapse and just plain stress of staying indoors.
Some online magazines are encouraging this.
Since we are all locked down, stuck in our homes, we have time to write.
I’ve written one and submitted it to Microfiction Monday Magazine.
