As the editor/publisher of Pittsburgh’s #1 magazine of adult entertainment, I’m always searching for a better subtitle for this blog. The subtitle is in the header right under Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette.
A good subtitle should do two things. It should tell a visitor at a glance what the editorial focus of this blog is and it should remind me of what that focus is, too. I think the new subtitle does both quite nicely.
How To Write And Sale Erotic Flash Fiction
Not bad. Not bad at all if I do say so myself. And I do say so myself. So, the focus of this blog, of this magazine, is to help new writers who are interested in erotic flash fiction to write it well enough that they have a good chance of being published by a paying market.
Now how exactly am I going to do this? In two ways. By featuring on this blog examples of the erotic flash fiction by contributors that I’ve accepted for publication (and paid for) and by featuring posts about how to write flash fiction in general and erotic flash fiction in particular. There is always a market for well-written erotic flash fiction; whether you submit your erotic flash fiction to other publications like this one or you self-publish and sale eBooks of your erotic flash fiction yourself.
You know you can’t beat that with a stick!
Yes, the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is a paying market. Unfortunately, I can publish only a fraction of the erotic flash fiction that is submitted to this publication. So, if you want to write and sale erotic flash fiction, the best way for you to take advantage of what this blog has to offer is to read it on a regular basis. I don’t know of another publication on the Internet with a greater concentration of well-written erotic flash fiction and articles on how to write it than you will find on this site.
If you are a new writer who is serious about learning how to write salable erotic flash fiction, you’re going to have to invest some time in utilizing this unique resource. And it will probably take time (weeks or months) for you to begin to understand (I’m still learning after all these years) the subtleties of flash fiction. But what you are really doing is investing time in your own talent. Just keep this quote in mind:
“Talent is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration.”–Anonymous
Accept the challenge of supplementing your income by writing erotic flash fiction. Let my little girlie magazine entertain, inform and inspire you on your journey as a working writer.
