For Flash Fiction Lovers

I have to confess that I haven't written any flash fiction...haven't even tried. Something about it intimidates me. Write a 150,000 word novel, piece of cake! But a 150 word story provokes instant paralysis. So I admire people who dive write in and write at this length. Nancy Jane Moore is one of them. Can you imagine writing a flash fiction story every week, week after week? My mind boggles. But she did, and she's put them together in a collection. Here's the skinny:

Nancy Jane Moore wrote her first flash fiction many years ago when every one in her writing group decided to enter a contest for one-page stories. None of them won, but she got hooked and has been writing short-shorts ever since. Her first project for Book View Café was posting a free flash fiction every week for a year. Some were reprints, others older stories that needed one more revision, but quite a few were written in the week they went up. This 52-story collection includes most of those stories and a few new ones as well.

If this piques your interest, you can find it here.
