The Answers Are Blowing in the Wind . . .

Okay, not so much "answers" as me rambling about flash fiction and how I write it. 

And not so much "in the wind" as "…against the wind" - Debi O'Neille's blog, Writing Against the Wind, that is. 

For a glimpse into how my writing mind works - bring a flashlight, it's dark in there - head on over and check out my guest post, "How Flash Fiction Unfurls." 

I hope you enjoy it.

Yes! I already stopped in, and I loved it. Such great thoughts and advice.

I have a flash fiction site, and what I noticed from most the people who would send me submissions is that most of them did not have strong endings to their flash fiction. If there's one thing that flash fiction needs, it's a strong ending.
