Ten answers to ten questions in 20 words or fewer. That’s less time than it takes to burn a match*.
(*Depending on the length of the match and your tolerance for burned fingers, obviously)
1) What about the prompt inspired you to write your winning piece? Frosty looked so pathetic, he deserved to be epic in someone’s eyes, but they somehow had to be really small.
2) How long have you been writing flash? Unless writing the first 500 words of a few dozen novels counts, then probably about two years.
3) What do you like about flash? I’m a full time working dad, so getting time to write is tough. With flash I get to FINISH something.
4) What flash advice would you give other writers? Write. I’ve got dozens of stories I never submitted, but each one helped make the next one better.
7) What other forms do you write (novels, poetry, articles, etc)? I’m making slow but steady progress on a novel and have another comic script in submission to the 2000AD anthology.
8) What is/are your favorite genre(s) to write, and why? I go dark – fantasy, horror, SF or crime, it tends to be almost black. It suits my sense of humour.
9) Tell us about a WIP. Ice Baby is a hard boiled crime thriller set on the mean streets of Liverpool and Faerie.
10) How do you feel about dragons? I watched The Flight Of Dragons until the VHS disintegrated, and I’ll be watching it with my daughter too.
