Some Flash Fiction

I haven’t been to a creative workshop in weeks because I was quite busy. Yesterday I had some hours to spare and went to one on flash fiction: writing very short stories. It’s a great exercise because you’re forced to be concise and also really helpful if you have a cool idea for a story but not enough time to write it down in, say, 7000 words.

 

Just for the heck of it, these are a few things I came up with:

 

First date

Shit! He has a moustache!

 

Celebrity crush

He looks a lot shorter in real life.

 

Really expensive restaurant

Do you have any ketchup?

 

Kiss

Two words: washing machine

 

Losing virginity (boy)

Aaaaaahhhh…

 

Losing virginity (girl)

Ouch…

 

Exam

What do you mean, this is not chemistry?

 

It’s just a lot of fun and I won’t be writing the next War and Peace anytime soon, but who cares. It’s fun! And literature! What more do you want?
