The last two years I’ve gotten the hang of writing flash fiction. Short short stories in no more then say 100 words. It has helped me let go of my propensity for long rambling sentences. It has made me realise which words really are essential for telling a story. But it hasn’t taught me how to write longer prose stories.
Today I’ve been struggling with the first writing exercise for my writing classes. Finding that my first few drafts is way too short. And right now I’m at a loss for how to make it longer without filling it with unnecessary rambling.
Hopefully I can find a way tomorrow.
