Postcard Fiction


Join me in creating amazing flash fiction. Provide the first line of a story or a quirky character name to get me started, an unusual item you’d like me to incorporate into a story, or anything else that you think will stir my creative juices, including fun photos. I’ll choose one (or more) to inspire a new piece of flash fiction (1,000 words or fewer), and I’ll post the resulting stories to this blog. You can email your prompts to postcard.fiction.blog@gmail.com.
