Leaving Home

My very (very!) short flash, Leaving Home, appeared in 7 X 20 yesterday. Click the link and have a read. 7 X 20 publishes flash fiction that only takes a few seconds to read. Perfect for those busy days when you don’t even have time for a short story.

    Congratulations, Chris! Nicely done. You’re right. I’ve been very busy these past few days I even neglected my blog 😦
    So your flash fiction was a nice break from the rush 😉

    I dig your short short story. It has all the elements. I love flash fiction and how it forces you to pare down, to cut out the unessential. Cool stuff.

      Hi Lurid Radiance, (Love the name of your blog!) Glad you enjoyed the story. I love flash fiction for the same reason you do. It’s a great writing excercise; trying to find the core of a story and to present it so that it’s complete.

What do you think?
