I have been writing off and on since I was 10. Now that I am retired there’s more time and incentive.
What inspired you to write flash fiction?
I have to give credit to my friends at the Fox Valley Writers Group for opening the door to flash fiction for me.
Describe your writing process.
My writing habits are not terribly disciplined. I mull over characters and plots before writing; sometimes weeks of that. Once I start it becomes an organic process of just letting it all flow to the page. I go with as many revisions as I feel necessary rather than a fixed amount.
What was the inspiration behind what was published on FewerThan500.com?
“Autumn Tale” was inspired by lost objects that you see in the road as you drive. What kind of life did they have previously?
What are you working on now?
I am currently working on more flash fiction for submissions, editing a novel on zombies and helping flesh out “Foxtales 4” for the writing group. It will be available later this year probably.
