I went to Costa a few days ago and took my notepad, I wasn’t planning on doing anything much but ended up hand writing a flash fiction story while there, the most I have done in a cafe before now was notes. I was quite happy with the result.
Once home I typed it up and made some changes, with a limit of 800 words I found it quite difficult to get it down to that as the typed up first draft was 1225 words. But with some feedback from friends I managed to get it down to the limit and submitted on Sunday.
A minor thing to do I suppose but given I spend most of my writing time doing notes but it is movement for me, I have submitted something for the first time in a year.
I plan on doing another competition from the new Writing Magazine that should come today, keep the momentum up.
