FLASHFLOOD JOURNAL is posting a new flash every five to ten minutes for 24 hours to celebrate National Flash Fiction day in the UK. My flash "Noonday Robbery at Booneville Savings and Loan" went up at 3 am PDT when I was fast asleep. It's an old one, voice and character driven, that I often do at readings because it's fun to read. I should think about that form more often, because I actually enjoy writing monologues.
Lots of friends in the flood, so it's fun to dip in and out. Here's the link, it you want to do that too.
My flash fiction "A Bartender Named Destiny" is out in ELLIPSIS ZINE today! My third appearance there.
I rather like the other two as well—one an expression of anxiety about Trump that turned out to be eerily prophetic of the pandemic ("Waking Up Late"), one an expression of unwarranted optimism when I thought Trump would be impeached and ousted. It was fun juggling two simultaneous conversations at a bar in "Happy Hour at The Eagle Bar & Grill."
Big thanks to editor Steve Campbell! (Also, I'd forgotten until I looked it up that Steve nominated "Waking Up Late" for a Pushcart. Thanks for that too!)
