“Applicious” is the first publication to be born from flash fiction created through #converstory.
Twitter is a forum for many ideas – good, bad and ugly – but over the last year, I’ve been exploring it as a platform for publishing flash fiction and poetry. I have particularly enjoyed the challenge of writing tweet length pieces based on a number of different writing prompts. These have become popular in the online #writingcommunity – essentially prompters publish a word or a theme and then writers from across the world respond through a tweet. It’s fun, but there is also a very supportive writing community out there ready to give you immediate feedback on your work. The quality of some of the writing, considering the constraints, is inspiring.
#converstory is a writing prompt which demands a story within the limits of a tweet, and in the words of its creator, Scott Christopher Beebe: “…no other action – not even dialogue tagging, etc. to add any detail to the stories, which are ONLY told through speech from characters created.”
Scott has compiled an anthology of stories which is now available on Amazon. “Applicious” is the first publication to be born from flash fiction created through #converstory.
I am thrilled and honoured to have had a piece selected for this publication. You can find out more here…
