Flash Fiction Post 11


I was talking to a guy at the gym the other day. I recognized him from when he used to jog past my previous house. Like me he’s getting on a bit and has creaky knees from too much long distance running. But he’s still fit and still going to gym several times a week. Turns out he’s also aspiring to be an author. So we’re going to share knowledge and work together a bit……. Just when I thought I was alone in this idiocy?

Meantime, my new book series is going well. I’m nearly finished with the edit of book 2. Then one more pass of the first two books before I get the cover designs done and think about when to publish. At the same time I will do the story board for book 3.

I’m also keeping up with the Flash Fiction. Today I am sharing the fourth of my own stories and I have ideas for the next three. One unexpected benefit from this is that, because the stories have to be kept short, I’m having to focus on getting my story told in a minimum number of words. This helps me to say things concisely, keep to the point and don’t write too much unnecessary detail. I can’t say that I’m good at it yet but it will certainly help me to improve.

I will appreciate any suggestions or comments you may have.

So on that note here is my fourth story called, Nothing, Dear. Just one of those days.
