I’ve read a fair bit of flash fiction over the past couple of years and I really enjoy it. Good flash fiction draws you in and gives you a brief, vivid snapshot with “the ability to hint at, or imply a larger story”. At under a 1000 words, you can’t exactly sink your teeth into it, but if you’re looking for a quick hit of your chosen fiction fix then it does the job.
Romance is the most popular genre in fiction, but I’ve struggled to find any flash fiction within this genre. If you know where I can find some, I’d appreciate the heads up. I think romance is rife for a bit of flash! Just think about all those firsts… First meeting, first touch, first kiss.
I’ll be writing a series of flash fiction pieces set in O’Shea’s Pub. It’s a chance for me to try and hone my writing style and it’s also an opportunity to share my writing with anyone who cares to read it.
The first piece called ‘The Reunion’ will follow shortly.
