I’ve mentioned my A-Z Flash Fiction Challenge already. I was going to wait for the 80 Post Challenge to finish, but I’m too excited about some of these stories I’ve been writing. Especially since I’ve been talking about them on Twitter every day. I’m keen to know what people think, so this is one of them; the very first one.
To give you the background; this challenge involves writing a piece of flash of up to 750 words (though some of them are more than that, oops!) using the list trigger words I wrote while supping hot chocolate in Café Nero. The trigger words go from A-Z (hence the name) and the idea is to write them as quickly as possible – leaving no time for second guessing myself or editing before I’m done writing.
Then when I’ve written them, I wait about a week then go back and edit.
This first one has been tightened up a bit, but I think it still needs some work, which is why I’m keen for thoughts and feedback. The trigger word for this was ‘Anger’ and I think I wrote the first draft in something like 13 minutes.
Take a look; I’d love to know your thoughts!

My A-Z Challenge is inspired by an idea from Maria at the First Draft Cafe.
