Is there hope in a world that’s lost?
Several months ago, I decided to try my hands at writing flash fiction again (the first time I tried to I sucked big time). It took me a while to condense this down to as few words as I could without abandoning the “showing” part and resort to “telling.” What helped me this time?
That’s right. I initially wrote this in a script format using only dialogues and action sequences. When I went back to re-write it, I added the prose portion. Then, I submitted the story to Jason Gerringer from the Weary Writer site for his one-on-one workshop to critique it, and received some very helpful feedback.
The result is that I found a home for it and the story was published with Asylum Ink.
Have you ever used any non-traditional technique when writing a story?
