BLOG - Another Flash

Did a story today, another 'Flash Fiction' exercise that went a LOT differently than I had thought it would. The concept was simple - I would imagine I was newly injured, low level quadriplegic, and it was my first day back at work after the accident.

Well, it went in a much different direction that I initially thought it would - much more bitter, but much more realistic I think. I don't think I was writing from the standpoint of 'me', the wannabe and fetishist. I actually seemed to almost channel what a 'normal' woman would feel if she were in that situation.

She doesn't actually get to work in the story - it's her morning routine, mostly, and her reflections on her situation. As with the last and my 'rules' for flash fiction, I wrote it in a little over an hour, no edits or rewrites, just a standard spell check.

I'm curious to know what people think.


  1. I love it :D But then you've probably figured out I'm not that hard to please...I wanna find out what happens at work...puhleeeeeeze? ;)

  2. We'll see if I continue it - these flash fiction are kind of one-shot deals, but I do like the tone and the cadence of the story. I'll see if I can work on expanding it at some point.

  3. Superb blog post, I have book marked this internet site so ideally I’ll see much more on this subject in the foreseeable future!
