Episode 1.13: Flash Fiction

July 15th, 2016

Tim is having problems with his Flash Fiction eating too many doughnuts and expanding into short story territory. The Mad Writers get together and try to figure out how to get his stories to stay within a reasonable range for Flash Fiction. They talk about the shape of a story vs Vignette, control of user perception, arranging implications instead of statements, getting rid of filler words and making words pull their weight. Many of the things they talk about are applicable to other forms of fiction but things that are especially important when writing Flash Fiction. Join them as Tim tries to figure out the magical world of Flash Fiction.
