Avoiding writing mistakes is not as easy as it sounds.
At least for me. So I loved finding more helpful tips.
I enjoy short stories. Especially flash fiction. Maybe it’s my imagination. I think Flash Fiction leaves a lot to imagine. Having said that, this article helped me think how I write both short stories and Flash.
In the following post:
Ms. Parrish explains not only what mistakes to avoid, but also what is and is not a story.
What she said really resonated with me.
The reader should leave a story, seeing something they didn’t see in the beginning.
That’s a story, it’s not a description goes how things are or were, it’s not a sensibility, or a mood. These things are elements of the story, but not the story.
I don’t know about you, but I’m guilty of getting bogged down with too much detail and description which can slow down the story.
