My short flash “Why Indeed” is up today in the UK-based FICTIVE DREAM in their wonderful #FlashFictionFebruary series. Love the company this month! Some big names (Jude Higgins, Francine Witte, Sandra Arnold, Len Kuntz, Gay Degani, DS Levy, Meg Tuite), many other great flash by authors new to me, and eleven more to come.
Big thanks to editor Laura Black, and to Kathy Fish and fellow Fast Flashers at the online reunion where my unreliable narrator was born.
Great original art for each flash by Claudia McGill.
My flash "Free Fall" was in the series last year, and I loved her art for that one too. This is my third publication in FICTIVE DREAM.
I can’t remember the prompt that elicited this flash, but I seem to remember the Virgin Mary popping up unexpectedly, so it might have been Kathy’s suggestion to insert something that doesn’t fit. I hope I can take another of her enormously popular online flash classes later this year.
Some interesting editorial opportunities coming up as I'm coasting into the finish line for teaching. I wish I were writing more, at least writing more consistently right now, but I'm not worried about having nothing to do when I retire.
