Sometimes you get so hung up on writing the right thing that you can't write at all. Bad writing is better than no writing. Bad writing can evolve into great writing if you give it enough time and attention.

So sit down, grab a glass of wine and just go. Don't stop to think. Just write. Describe a character, a scene, a hazy plot you have kicking around in your head. Don't worry if it makes sense, or sounds good, or is so cliche ridden it makes you cringe. Just get it on paper (or screen). You can edit the sh!t out of it once it's out there. But until it's there you can't do anything but wish you were writing.(less)

When others are able to see and touch and dream about your work, it becomes theirs. It's exhilarating, terrifying, to let it go like that. But when you see how your writing becomes someone else's story... There's something addicting about that feeling.(less)

Late again! This is my July assignment for the 12 Short Stories competition. This month, the prompt was “Cats and Dogs” at 300 words exactly. I managed to tweak this one to 300 words on the nose, but I’m not sure if it meets the requirements for a flash fiction piece. Is there enough of a conflict? Enough of a resolution? What would you like to see me do differently? Let me know i...
