Flash fiction has a special language all its own. I’m not talking about codes and symbols. I’m talking about a special written language of diction and syntax, straight forward statement, implied meaning and intentional description.
And when a writer is good enough and lucky enough to smoothly integrate all these elements of the special language of flash fiction, something wonderful happens.
The reader becomes a partner in a creative act that takes reader and writer on a psychic journey of discovery. The truly exciting thing about this journey is that it begins, builds and is resolved within a few hundred words.
This, dear gentle reader, is the special language of the flash fiction short story.
Hello, all you readers and writers of flash fiction erotica! The month of May is nearly upon us. The Old Soldier is hard at work to bring you another month of great erotic flash fiction, tips on writing erotica and a running commentary on some of the things of local interest that take place in Pittsburgh, especially in Little Italy where I spend a lot of time (and money).
Karaoke (as performance art) at Nico’s in Little Italy will be high on my list of local interests to cover along with the comings and goings on Liberty Avenue as I occupy my favorite bar stool at Armand’s.
Any day now before May, I’ll publish the first erotic story of Alexa Night’s to appear in the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction; and in May I’ll publish a new story by Anna Bayes that is sure to tickle your fancy.
In the mean time explore the site. Follow or take out a free email subscription and keep reading and keep writing those erotic short stories.
This is the Old Soldier reporting for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction, an online magazine of sex as art and entertainment.
