Flash


What’s it all about then?

Just a bit of fun really. The talented science fiction writer Gareth Lyn Powell (GLP) came up with the idea and a bunch of us, not above jumping on a well crafted bandwagon, joined in. The idea was to post a piece of free flash fiction every Friday. All of this originally appeared on my first blog over at wordpress.

For me it was a way of ensuring I wrote something every week. You can read some of GLP’s thoughts on Friday Flash Fiction and other matters over at SciFi.uk.com
