I’m pretty excited to have finally started a blog and get my writing out. But I’m also pretty new to all of this, and just wanted to lay out how I intend to proceed in keeping this blog active.
There’s a little site called http://www.reddit.com that I like to frequent often. On that site there is a sub-Reddit called r/WritingPrompts. The original idea for this blog post came to me last night, somewhere between two and three o’clock in the morning. I had an idea that I could take inspiration from different prompts on the sub-Reddit, and make flash fiction pieces out of them. Another thing that was important to me was that the flash fiction be immediate and unedited. I wanted to keep up a blog, but at the same time didn’t want to spend too much time editing. I write short stories as well, and have hopes that I can begin to get them published, so that’s where all of my editing-energy goes.
If you also like writing prompts, check out http://www.reddit.com/r/WritingPrompts. They have loads of ideas, and anyone can post one as long as you have a reddit account (which is free).
If you’d like me to post a link with the specific prompt, just leave it in the comments. Also, if you have any other suggestions, I’d be more than happy to hear them.
Glad to be here on the world-wide web with you all.
