To #writecampaign friends, visit back tomorrow for my #writecampaign challenge entry!
I’ve been in love with flash fiction writing for a while, and it has culminated in the collection A to Z Stories of Life and Death.
But I admire my fellow-writers and am always in search of good advice, so today, for Monday Writing, we have flash fiction writing advice from J.C. Martin. She is an author querying her first novel, and her short stories hand and flash fiction have been published in various journals and anthologies.
J. C. Martin is also one of the organizers of the Rule of Three Blogfest, a month-long shared-world fiction extravaganza starting 5th October— with some great prizes, and of course, a lot of exposure and constructive feedback for your writing. This is one Blogfest fiction authors ought not to miss.
From here on, I’ll pass the mike to my honored guest, so take it away, J.C.!
When Damyanti asked me to do a guest post on writing flash fiction, I was super-flattered. Me, posting advice on writing flash fiction, on the blog of the Dame of Flash herself? You can imagine I had my work cut out for me.
- Maximum capacity: one plot, one scene, one character
- Skip the beginning
- Brevity is the soul of flash fiction
- Do the twist
Do you enjoy flash fiction writing? Have I missed out any important advice?
