short stories

As usual, you wait long enough, one of the muses will offer up new ideas. I have two, a brand new scifi/noir story, and an older flash horror story idea that suddenly seems to re-surfaced with a new image. I do love my noir, and I really like this story idea, at least so far.

I forgot how much I like flash. I love how you write and write to get the story started, then roll your eyes and chop it all out as unessential once you finally get to the point. I love the hacking and slashing in flash, the word counting, and the ways you find of chopping any excess to meet the 1000 word limit and still tell your story. I love succinct, and nothing says succinct like a flash story.
