Prompts for Flash Fiction
How about a little originality?
I feel like this sight breeds two types of people: one who produces researched and highly produced material and the other who just churns out piece after piece. I'm not saying one is better than the other. I've just recognized myself swaying between both categories.
Truth is, I hate writing journalistic pieces. I hate having to research and getting the facts right. So I find myself instilling my opinion on matters so that, really, I can't be "wrong".
I want to exercise my creativity.
I love to use my imagination. I love to write.
I have plenty of stories to tell. The problem is, I don't want to run into copyright laws down the line when I want to publish something I already posted online or something like that. One step forward, two steps back.
And yet, I still want to post my fiction somewhere that people can see. I'd be lying if I said I only write for my own satisfaction. Every writer wants their words to be heard. I just want to share another facet of my personality, here.
So I thought about it. And thought. And thought some more.
Here's what I came up with: flash fiction. Prompted by my readers.
So comment. Leave an idea you're dying to read about. And as simple as it is for you to post something, I'll write it. I might need time to think about a story worthy enough to tell for the request but, sooner or later, I'll get it posted.
That's not to say I'm going to be lazy and not think of anything to write about on my own.
Imagination is endless.
