A Good Writer Can Do That

You hear those gunshots last night, Matt? Boom, boom, boom , one after the other. Six in a row.

Firecrackers, he chuckled. The kids down the road.

What! You killed the romance, Matt. I had a great piece of flash fiction on the go: about an active shooter on the prowl, a gang fight … it was going to be a ripper. I was up half the night writing it. I couldn’t sleep.

You can still do a great piece of flash fiction, John. Just make it comic, not horror. A good writer can do that.

  1. Sad! You spent so much time visualising and then…that’s what happens when you ask for honesr review from family. I asked my dad to find 20 stories out of 350 to compile my book. He told me, there wouldn’t be enough decent stories!
