EVERYONE HAS A LITTLE STORY…
What do the names RJ Clarken, Walt Wojtanik, Hannah Gosselin, Laurie Kolp, De Jackson, Rob Halpin, Aimee Halpin and the late Dyson McIllwain have in common?
They all probably first crossed paths at Poetic Asides with Robert Lee Brewer. They have been fervent contributors here at POETIC BLOOMINGS. But, what many may not know, they have all served as administrators and prompters at the flash fiction site, FLASHY FICTION.
Well, in keeping with this air of change in our beloved garden, I would like to announce that FLASHY FICTION will be joining up under our new banner to be a part of FLASHY FICTION FRIDAY. Rob Halpin and his wife Aimee along with myself, have been keeping the site (which RJ Clarken and her cohorts started back in the early days of Rock!… well, not really that long ago!) on life support and I felt this would be a perfect fit for our flash fiction aficionados here at our new and improved site. Flash fiction may not be everyone’s bag of beans, but for those who do flash, it will be a haven which will be more accessible.
The three of us will alternate Fridays with a new prompt, with the last Friday being instructional, a discussion or an exercise. You may post your efforts in the comment section and/or provide a link to your story on your blog so we can visit your other fine works.
Also in this forum we will develop characters, backgrounds and other aspects for those who venture into the NANOWRIMO every November. It may be a helpful tool in this regard.
I thank Rob Halpin for his outstanding work, developing the new look at FLASHY FICTION and for getting the “Newer” design of the CREATIVE BLOOMINGS’ FLASHY FICTION FRIDAY up and running so quickly. Those who regularly visit the site will have already seen a “preview” .
At FLASHY FICTION FRIDAY we have a tagline: “Everyone has a little story to tell…” Join us on Fridays and try your hand at telling yours.
