Fear and Loathing: This month I am participating in the annual April A to Z Blog Challenge. I did this in 2012 and was really pleased with the results. I had been writing a lot of flash fiction in the three previous months and really enjoyed writing my 26 stories.
up stripping out words, taking my writing down to the bare bones.
So here I am, attempting to write 26 more flash fiction stories and due to lack of practice, really struggling with it. I love doing flash but have to say that it doesn't sell. So now I need to find a balance to keep both skill sets working.
Fear that my stories won't be as good as the ones I wrote in 2012. Fear that the people won't enjoy them as much as they have in the past. Fear that I've lost the creative touch that I had two years ago. Loathing that I have these fears and self-doubts.
