This group is the brainchild of Alex J. Cavanaugh. I've met and made friends with many cool writers and have been able to share my feelings and worries about the process of writing without fear of judgement. You don't have to feel insecure to join either. You can join and give support to those of us who are having those moments of wanting to give up or those days where we're just straight up freaking out. Either way, it's definitely fun and worth it!
I've entered two flash fiction contests, which take place every Friday at the Flash Friday blog. I've missed a couple of the contests, but I'm thinking about making my own photo prompts and writing about those for practice. I really think flash fiction is very difficult - there was one story that couldn't be shorter or longer than 100 words. One hundred words for an entire story to be told! Yikes!
My hope is this will be good practice for me and allow my writing skills to develop. On the Flash Friday blog, there's a winner plus honorable mentions. Then the following Monday another entry is chosen to be analyzed with what worked and made the story strong in so few words. I think this could really help me get a feel for what makes a good scene.
How about you? Anything new in your writing world? :D
