New flash fiction

Greetings from post-blizzard New York City!

I’ve really been getting into writing flash fiction, or micro-fiction, lately. It’s fun to try to give a strong impression of a scene, a story, in few words. And other people seem to like my super short pieces too. Seizure has just launched a flash fiction section of its website, Flashers, and my story ‘My Sweetheart Saw a Child’s Face in the Train Window‘ is the first one up. I hope you enjoy reading it.

Do also check out the submission guidelines.

I also recently had two super-short stories published as part of the London Literary Project. It’s first challenge is based on the London Clock. One of my stories is set at the Green Park Tube Station, and the other features George Orwell. I’m happy to be involved in such an interesting project.

The London Clock submission guidelines are here.

    • Thanks for reading, Annabel. Give it a crack! Sometimes I’ll ponder a character, a setting or a few words I like, take a shower or go for a walk, and something complete will form. I’m really enjoying the form.

      • I can see how it would work as a way of playing with new characters or scenes you’re pondering, and also as a way not to just kill off small ‘moments’ that might not fit in a larger piece.
