Today’s Flash Fiction Writing Challenge Is Not About Fiction

You read that right.

Today, I’m not asking for 1000 words of fiction.

I’m asking for a 1000 word essay (meaning, blog post).

And I want it on this subject:


That’s it. I wanna know why you write. What it is that makes you want to tell stories and write them down. What drives you? Something biographical? Something internal? Dig deep. Be thoughtful. Write it out like the bad-ass that you know you are.

The standard rules apply, otherwise:

Write it at your online space. Drop a link to it here in the comments.

Due in one week: 7/31.

Your time is now: tell us why you write.
