Last week, I participated in an online Flash Fiction course, Flash Fiction: Writing Tiny, Beautiful Stories taught by Kathy Fish. I felt so motivated to write which was great because I’d lost my motivation somewhere along the way lately. I finished up my final project, posted it, and was met with very positive feedback. The timing was perfect for National Flash Fiction Day’s Flash Flood competition. June 15th is National Flash Fiction Day so throughout the day, the site will post winning entries. Everything happens quickly with this competition with some submissions receiving responses within the same day. This was the case with mine. I received my acceptance when the story was about 12-hours old! It will appear on the journal at around 6:20 a.m. (BST) on the 15th of June 2019.
