Hunger controls me
The computer calls to me
I crack a third egg
The Old Soldier is going to have scrambled eggs for breakfast. I think I’ll put some pepper jack cheese in my scrambled eggs.
Hello, my brother and sister bloggers, poets, readers and writers of erotic flash fiction from all over the world! The Old Soldier is on duty early this morning. Dawn is more than an hour away.
Haiku poetry is such a lovely art form. It can teach us a lot about writing flash fiction. First there is the simplicity of haiku. Then there is the need to make every word count. And finally there is the structure: 5,7,5. The first five syllables are the setup. The next seven syllables are the buildup. The last five syllables are the resolution. Setup, buildup and resolution is just like flash fiction.
This magazine is the home of the erotic flash fiction story.
Another Must Win Game For The Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers play the Baltimore Ravens at Heinz Field later today. If the 1-4 Steelers are to have a realistic shot at making the playoffs this season, they have to win this game, at least according to the radio sports show I listen to.
One of the host of the show comes across as a know-it-all. He’s quick to abruptly end a call if the caller doesn’t agree with him. His style is confrontational and he is dismissive of other people’s opinions. Well it seems that he has gotten in trouble with the show’s managers.
So far he is 0-5 in predicting the outcome of Steelers football games. You can be dismissive of other people’s opinions if you prove to be right. Now it appears that his job is on the line if he is wrong about today’s game. He picks the Steelers to win.
Keep reading and keep writing that erotic flash fiction.
This is the Old Soldier reporting from Pittsburgh.
