Hope you all had a great weekend.
Today I’m sharing the third story in my Flash Fiction series of six stories from Lynn Johnston’s sample set used to prepare her Worksheet for brainstorming a short story. If you haven’t got the worksheet or the first two stories go back to the posts for Thursday and Friday last week. Here is the link for story 3.
This is the Sound of the End of the World, by Matt Dovey: http://flashfictiononline.com/main/article/this-is-the-sound-of-the-end-of-the-world/
I liked this story a lot. It catches the idea of how humanity is often its own worst enemy and has a great way of getting its point across. I liked the ending too. It reminded me of a cartoon I once saw of a tiny mouse flipping the finger at the hawk that was about to kill it. (The last great act of defiance!)
One thought I had for those who are contemplating writing some Flash Fiction of their own. Try reverse analyzing the stories to see how they fit the advice given in Lynn’s worksheet. That will give you more insight into how to use the worksheet.
I hope that you are enjoying these stories and are becoming keen to try your own.
Remember – “Everyone has a story, start yours today!”
