A seven-year effort to write shorter has at last resulted in the publication of my first flash fiction story at Pindeldyboz.
It's called "In Sprite We All Can Breathe."
550 words. Can you believe that? I've heard of stories that short, even read a bunch. But I never thought it would be possible for me to stop typing that quickly.
Of course, since completing this I've seen two stories begun as flash fiction blossom into novellas. So the quest for brevity remains an ongoing challenge. Just let me celebrate this small victory--this tiny skirmish won in a war with myself I've been losing since the third grade.
So just read it; it will take 2 minutes of your life.
