Weekly Flash #2 – Victory or De-Feet

Posted by on Jun 1, 2011 in Flash Fiction, Word of the Day | 0 comments

So far in this one flash fiction a week challenge I’ve been having a great time. Writing flash fiction is teaching me tons about brevity and the best ways to get things across. Not only that, but it’s been a hoot. The titles and taglines have come fast. Honestly, that’s what I was most worried about starting this. How in the world was I going to come up with 50 plus titles a year? It seemed impossible to me. Yes indeedy, I do have title issues, but it seems not with these guys. I wonder why that is? Maybe because I’m trying so hard not to be serious.

Anyway, this week’s helping is called Victory or De-Feet and features a man with a foot fetish. This story focused on character and relationship development. Once again, I wrote and edited it over two days. I hope you enjoy it. Please leave comments if you feel inclined.

Next week’s story may be one based on the staring line mentioned here. I’ve already written that story, but I may try something else between now and next week. We’ll see. I am supposed to start edits on Broods this week, which will chew up all my writing time, if it happens.
