Flash Fiction Fridays

I love fiction!  I love to read it and I love to write it!  I’m a day dreamer at heart and love a great story where anything is possible.  The only problem with reading and writing great fiction for me is time.  Let’s be honest how incredible does a book have to be for you to take the time to read it?  I’ve got a few favorite authors that I’m willing to sacrifice some sleep to know what happens in their story.  However for the most part, time is a commodity I don’t regularly give up for fiction-to read it or write it. 

Enter Flash Fiction…

Flash Fiction by definition is a story under 1,000 words.  Purists even suggest that the sweet spot is between 350 and 500 words.  Not a hook or summary but a complete story, with a beginning, middle, and end; in less than 1,000 words.  Wow it’s a tall order full of possibilities and struggles.  So starting today I am rolling out my newest addition to the blog, Flash Fiction Fridays.  Every Friday I will post a new flash fiction story.  As a homeschooling mom, wannabe homesteader, simple life pursuer, and all in all crazy hot mess I could use a few minutes of pure pleasure (with zero calories involved, win, win) per week.  And I’m willing to bet you could use a little not-guilty pleasure yourself.  I hope you enjoy!!  If you have any suggestions, shoot me an email. Thanks for taking the time to check out my latest crazy idea!!
