I went through a long period of being snowed under by the process of writing - too snowed under to write about write here.
Now though, I have a book I've just gotten published, that I need to tell everyone about!
It is a sampler of flash fiction stories taken from the work I was doing for the Creative Writing PhD. This sampler plays with the idea of using short-short stories to reveal an identity. Usually, this works towards revealing the identity of an individual, but in this sampler, the flashes reveal something about a family.
Families are amazing sources of narrative. If you feel stuck for an idea - if you have writer's block - think about a story you've heard more times than you can count over the Christmas table, or at the family BBQ... Right there, you have the root of a story. Write the story from a first person perspective, or from the perspective of a spectator. You might even want to extrapolate on some aspect of the story, or write a whole new story based on one of the characters from the original story.
With this sampler, you can read the flashes in any order, and you will still get an idea of what the extended family these stories come from is like. I love this about using flash fiction to tell a larger story. It is not linear, the reader doesn't have to keep reading incase they lose the thread of the story they're reading.
Anyway, ramble, ramble...
Here is where you can buy the book!
