Hello, hello, hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers who are also big fans of blogging, karaoke, movies, sexy stories, television and topless models! Rejoice! You’ve come to the right place.
My name is Guy Hogan and I’m the editor/publisher of the blog in front of your very eyeballs right this minute. Stop! Where are you going? You’re not afraid of a few naked women, are you? You say you can get plenty of naked women all over the web; but can you also get flash commentaries, flash fiction, flash interviews and flash reports (and Naked News videos) all with the purpose of entertaining, informing and inspiring you and all of this in the same place with those naked women? Hummmmmmm?
I didn’t think so!
So, relax and stick around for a while. This is a blog published by a writer for other writers. There is no doubt about that. But we writers are a gregarious group and we want to share with everyone the two most important things we have to offer to the world: our imaginations and our words.
It’s a mostly sunny day in The ‘Burgh today. The high will be around 85 with a 0% chance of rain. A lovely day. I just came back from a stroll. I walked from North Oakland where I live to Schenley Plaza. It was around 10:00 a.m. The main branch of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh had not opened its doors yet and there were only a few people in Schenley Plaza. The campus of the University of Pittsburgh was relatively empty, too; but I knew that would change as the day moved on.
The Steelers won their opening game of the 2016 season last night: 38 to 16 over the Washington Redskins. And even though it was beautiful and peaceful outside in Oakland, I was anxious to get back to my workstation. You see I love being a blogger. I take blogging very seriously. Blogging is my job (I’m retired) and my passion. All photos of Lucy Pinder used for this blog post were sampled from Egotastic All Stars.
Hail to Pitt!
This is Guy Hogan reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette. Now would be a great time for you to checkout my E-book in the sidebar. Included in this book are not only the flash fiction stories that got me admitted to the graduate fiction writing program at Pitt in 2003; but these same stories also won me a $60,000 fellowship that allowed me to finish my MFA in fiction writing in 2006. Every reader and writer of flash fiction should own this book. Download your copy today.
