For those of you who have been following this blog recently, you may have noticed that I have become obsessed with Flash Fiction. I love reading it and writing it. Some of you may not know that I am very new to the Flash Fiction community online. I stumbled upon this wonderful site, The Angry Hourglass in early March. The idea of writing short stories in under 500 words intrigued me because I have such a short attention span that I used to get bored with my stories/characters when I attempted writing longer works. Well, little did I know, this was just one site out of a whole community of Flash writers and weekly contests. I then hopped over to Flash! Friday, another fantastic Flash contest. I started entering a few and I was hooked.
Well, I started noticing something among this wonderful community of writers. They were all talking about Flash Dogs. It seemed that this was the “must have” book for flash writers. So I looked it up and found out that it was an anthology of flash fiction stories written by many of the writers in this online community. I knew that I HAD to have this book. My budget, however, had something to say about it. So I put it on the back burner. I also discovered that Flash Dogs was in the process of publishing another anthology and many of the weekly contests had a Grand Prize for a chance to submit stories for the second book. I was, and still am, very new to this form of writing so I didn’t have ambition to really try to get in. I need to get my feet wet and get more involved in honing my craft before I’m published, but I am hoping that they are planing on publishing more anthologies in the future and it will be my goal to get in one of them!.
Anywho, I was recently given an amazon gift card, HOORAY! So I ordered the book first chance I got and here it is!! I can not wait to delve in!!
