Flash Anxiety

I managed a piece of flash fiction for days 2 through 6 of FlashNaNo 2020. Yesterday's story is unfinished, and I'm unhappy with it. I was up for an hour last night thinking about it. No resolution, but I came up with a related, while at the same time totally new, idea. 

I'm taking the weekend off from writing flash to try to do some organized flash studying (instead of the disorganized studying I've been doing in the evenings) and planning, particularly of and for flash nonfiction, which I'd like to try before the end of the month.

Anyone who pays attention here knows I rarely work on weekends, so studying and planning is pretty close to real work for me..

Here is a nice piece on writing flash fiction from MasterClass. It's kind of flashy, in fact. Short and to the point. 

And if you'd like to read a very decent piece of flash fiction, try Last Long Night by Lina Rather at Flash Fiction On-line.
