So...what happens when you start to tap into your creative side?
Well, you (meaning me) start to write super short short stories that you (again me) eventually learn are called Flash Fiction.
This Flash Fiction is decent, so it gets submitted to a contest and makes it through the first cut.
This inspires the writer (come on, you know who we are talking about, right?) to write more. This 'writer' then starts getting ideas about putting down on paper a story idea that has been swirrling and stewing around in her brain. This isn't a nice story. It isn't a sweet story. It is sexy and dark. It is a story that isn't going to stop harrassing the brain of the writer until it gets its 15 minutes of fame - or at least gets written down and shared with friends.
So, it is interesting to find out what lurks inside a person. Perhaps unchaining the cellar door and letting it out might be kind of fun (and yes,, we are STILL talking about me...it is MY blog after all).
