Fight flash fiction flab

I didn’t want to say anything, but your flash fiction muscle is looking a little, ahem, atrophied. So take a break from your work-in-progress and flex your flabby flash fiction muscle!

I mean it. Don’t ignore the short fiction area of your brain or you’ll start to look like those guys who go to they gym and only work the upper body.

IS  THIS  WHAT  YOU  WANT?   I don't think so.

IS THIS WHAT YOU WANT? I don’t think so.

TO HELP YOU, my agent is hosting a flash fiction contest. She’s offering the winner a first page manuscript critique and I KNOW YOU KNOW how important first pages are.

A couple of my agent mates and I are judging but we’re not allowed to be bribed (a really dumb rule that I contested).

Come on, just enter. It’ll be fun!


On the verge of submission

I have a short piece on my agent’s blog today! Feel like checking it out? Here’s the link:


If you’re a writer working toward publication, you might want to subscribe to Linda’s blog while you’re over there. She’s got lots of good info in the archives and lots more coming up.
