Flash Fiction - A New Start

I'd been thinking of restarting the blog for some time now (everyone needs a blog, right?), but couldn't think of a way to do it.

Should I continue telling people about my writing, the problems I have, the way I do things? Well, it didn't seem too popular the first time round, and even I couldn't have enjoyed it that much since I stopped doing it some months ago (I know, full time job + baby = not much time (quite the understatement!), but even so, a few moments here and there for a blog post wasn't too much to ask)... So that was a no.

I couldn't write about my publishing experience, as I have none. I didn't want to do a parenting blog as I don't feel I have the knowledge or experience (yet!) to inform other people.

So what then?

That's when the lovely Rebecca Emin (see her blog at explained flash fiction to me. Teeny tiny stories of under 1000 (or 500) words. Compact, precise, quick. Perfect.

Well, we'll see. Perhaps perfection is a bit too much to ask right now, but have a look and see what I can come up with!


  1. Aww, thank you for that mention, how very lovely of you :o)

  2. Hi.I just found your blog via Twitter, quite accidental as I am not a great Twitter user. Your post struck a chord with me.
    Like you I have just discovered the world of flash fiction and I'm really enjoying it (though it is proving to be a distraction from the novel I had started, but still an enjoyable distraction)
    At present I am 'playing' with 140 Fiction, Dribbles, Drabbles and Droubbles!
    Have a look at my blog http:// to see my humble offerings.
    I hope this is useful.
