After the struggles I had with the holiday novella, I feel blah and uninspired. Despite the thousand and one plot bunnies and two nearly completed novels waiting for me, I don’t feel like writing. I had four days off last week and only wrote a few hundred words. Now, a few days off to celebrate the holidays is good, but on top of weeks of the blahs? Not good. That’s a slippery slope to no writing at all. And being a writer isn’t about only writing when you feel inspired. It’s about writing when you don’t. However, a creative kick in the pants can sometimes help.
So when the lovely and talented Helena Stone asked me if I’d be interested in joining her for her Flash Fiction Mondays, I jumped at the chance! It helped with three goals I set for myself for 2015: more regular blog posts, more free stories, and boosting my creativity!
So, every Monday starting next week Helena and I will post a very short flash fic based on a single photograph. We’ll take turns alternating who picks the image and each write a brief story based on it. I’ll be sure to link to her blog so you’ll get two flash fics every Monday! Fun, huh?
I picked this image for next Monday. I have my flash fic nearly written and I can’t wait to see what Helena comes up with!
See you next Monday!
