This moment has happened a few times- it takes more than one calling for some. I liked to write and think of stories as a kid, but taking the time to learn and practice via a workshop a year back is what really solidified it. The inspiration was always there, but hard work and discipline helped me realize that it made me happy, even when difficult.
What inspired you to write flash fiction?
Time. My life has been chaotic, and the fleeting glimpse of a flash piece is not only great to read, but to write. My scenery, life, job, trajectory is all changing, and it is hard to focus as much as I would like. Flash is nice because you can write the first draft in one sitting, capture the feeling or moment, and do each edit in one sitting as well. It is efficient, bite-sized, and delicious.
