On LinkedIn.com, Emma Baird created a “Friday Flash Fiction” page that has really taken off. Here, users post their fiction stories of 100 words or fewer, and the group members often respond and comment. This blog is a continuation of the LinkedIn thread, hoping to expand our writing to an audience outside LinkedIn.
Emma has recently set up a Friday Flash Fiction group in LinkedIn, to complement the long-running discussion. The F.F.F. group has a number of topics, such as different story lengths and items related to the writing process, and we’re currently adding them to the WordPress blog.
We’d love to hear from you … and post any Flash Fiction stories you’d like to share! Please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org anytime. The rules are simple–fictional writing and no more than 100 words. Please include your name as well, so that you can receive credit as an author.
Friday Flash Fiction-er Gordon Lawrie has also set up a website for our exercise, at (http://www.fridayflashfiction.com/). The site features all the stories from the F.F.F. history, and it has a page where users can easily submit stories. Gordon posts these stories regularly, and users are invited to submit their works.
Feel free to e-mail if you have questions about (or ideas for) this blog, or if you simply want to be in touch. As mentioned, we’re eager to hear from you.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy the stories.
