Flash Fiction

In Progress | Completed

Welcome to my Flash Fiction page! The stories here are ones that I’ve timed myself while writing. I set my timers for either 20 minutes, 30 minutes, or 60 minutes. For a while I was doing 60 or 25 minutes, but that wasn’t quite working for me. I also found myself going back and reworking the stories for longer series. I actually turned the original Flash Fiction page into the Workshop where I had a few different versions of some things. I ended up abandoning Flash Fiction and the Workshop altogether.
