You’ll read it in a flash

Today I’m playing musical chairs on the Alliance of Independent Authors’ (ALLi) blog of self-publishing advice.

As Commissioning Editor, I’m usually behind the scenes, soliciting suitable posts for the various strands on the blog – publishing news, writing craft, marketing advice, and so on. But for once I’m writing a post myself: a feature for the Writing Craft strand.

My post focuses on writing flash fiction – those very short stories that are typically no more than 1,000 words long, compared to the 3,000 words of a conventional short story.

I only started to embrace flash fiction a couple of years ago, but already I love it with an evangelical zeal. I’m keen to encourage other writers to give it a go, to practice writing succinct, terse prose that will help them polish their writing in other genres.

And now I think I’d better not let this post to go on any longer!

(Still fewer than 200 words!)
