Dark Flash – February 8 – 2023

grapx: spwilcen

Something of a success here.  Scribbled insomnia notes transcribed to over three hundred words of first draft. Three hundred word is still “flash.”  I thought to flesh it out, to help readers better understand characters and setting.  It grew. When it hit five hundred words, I realized I’d gone the wrong direction.

So began the pain of edit.  Tedious word choices…

Here we are.  Dark Flash.  One hundred fifty words.

150 words; two minutes if you sneeze.

Alas. No sex. No swearing. No Blood, guts or gore. Except in your imagination.

Retired career IT software engineer, or as we were called in the old days, programmer, it's time to empty my file cabinet of all the "creative" writing accumulated over the years - toss most of it, salvage and publish what is worthwhile.
