Hello hello hello, fans of flash fiction who live all over the world! Guy Hogan is my name and flash fiction is my game.
How’s everyone doing?
It’s an overcast day in The ‘Burgh today and the high will only be around 68. There’s a 20% chance of rain. But as long as the Pirates keep playing winning baseball and my computer doesn’t crash, I’m a happy blogger.
I know there are some of you out there reading this who want to be writers, but you’re not writers. It may be because of family commitments or because of job commitments or it may simply be that being a writer is too far fetched to come true.
Well, I’m a writer. And if I can be a writer so can you.
My genre is erotic flash fiction; but all flash fiction has the same form: the setup, the buildup and the payoff. The form is easy to learn. Flash fiction takes only a small investment of time compared to a regular-length short story or the novel. It’s one of the great things about flash fiction.
No, well-written flash fiction is not easy to write. But I can help you learn to write well-written flash fiction and there is definitely a market for well-written flash fiction. How can I help you write marketable flash fiction?
The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is the best source on the Internet for learning how to write flash fiction. It’s all here: great examples of flash fiction, over 100 posts on how to write flash fiction and a book in ebook, kindle and print format that I wrote especially for readers and writers of flash fiction.
So, what are you waiting for? Your dream of being a flash fiction writer is only a click away. Get the book. Become a regular reader of this magazine. And the rest, as they say, will be history.
This is the Old Soldier reporting from Pittsburgh.
Hail to Pitt!
