Creativity in the morning (or at any time) can be hard to come by. We flash fiction writers have to squeeze our creativity into a few hundred words and that’s never easy to do. Not only do we have to figure out what to write about, but we have to figure out what to leave out of what we write about. We also have to figure out when we can write about it.
We have to find the time to be creative.
One of my regular contributors no longer contributes fiction to this blog because she can’t find time to be creative. She lives in a very rural area and the local school closed down so that now she has to home school her children. Add to this all her other domestic responsibilities and she literally has no time for creativity.
I have the exact opposite problem. I have too much time on my hands.
Creativity can be as fragile as the wings of a butterfly. The funny thing is, it can also be as tough as nails.
