Six flash published in the month of June, three flash and two essays published in the month of May. Overwhelming really.
Reflecting on the flip side of social media today: the rush when you get praise and appreciative readers, the anxiety when no one responds. I spend too much time checking my posts and worrying about who thinks what. Also a lot of time reading and disseminating good work by others—valuable, but also time-consuming, time I could spend writing and revising work of my own. And while it might seem that reading good flash by others would be inspiring, this year I've been far more inspired by visual art than by writing. Facebook and twitter are feeling like black holes.
