During 2015 I began to write flash fiction (very short pieces of fiction), I feel this has really tightened up my writing and given me the opportunity to try different genres. I am sad to say that two of the places I submitted writing to - Flash! Friday and Micro Bookends, are closing down and a third place - Three Line Thursday is having a hiatus. I am very grateful to the folk who run these writing places and can appreciate the huge time commitment these endeavours must take. Grace Black, David Borrowdale and Rebekah Postupak - you are heroes!
Other pieces of writing from the past weeks are as follows:
I was delighted to be interviewed by Rebekah Postupak, for the last in Flash! Friday's Spotlights on writers around the globe - the interview can be read here, there were many questions, and I could have written much, much more about writers from Scotland.
FLASHDOGS - Anthology 3
I am relieved to have submitted my 2 stories for the upcoming Flashdog's 3rd Anthology, which will be published early in 2016, with the proceeds going to The Book Bus charity. My 3rd story for this anthology was a collaborative piece, written jointly with the fabulous writer Voima Oy, I was honoured to write with her.
I have very much enjoyed taking part in Visual Verse for the past 3 months, I particularly like their fabulous image prompts. My pieces, Unheard Frequencies, My North Star, and In the Turquoise Afterglow, can be read here.
I wrote a short piece, A Little Deaf? - which you can read here.
Wishing the very best to all for 2016.
