I love writing short fiction, especially from a prompt, so I jumped at the chance to be a part of a new flash fiction writing challenge. So far, I’ve written four, which I will link you to shortly.
Recently I started taking part in several writing prompt challenges to help my own writing out. You may have read one of my 13 Week Streak stories, or something I dreamed up from a prompt at Be Kind Rewrite.
