F is for Flash Fiction

3CB9B5CE-9A17-487D-AC95-CB46590B5F5EThe tagline for my blog is “Random Musings on Life, Society, and Politics.” But something is missing from that tagline. Since I started this blog in May 2017, I’ve published 2,670 posts. According to my categories count, 534 are about “Life,” 348 are about “Politics,” and 0 — yes, zero — are about “Society.” In fact, “Society” isn’t even a distinct category on my blog.

The category on my blog with the most posts, 1,103 of them, is “Flash Fiction.” Many, but not all, of my flash fiction posts are written in response to prompts — word prompts, photo prompts, miscellaneous writing prompts, and combinations thereof.

I really enjoy exercising my imagination and creativity when I write flash fiction. It’s actually more fun to make up fictional tales in my head than it is to deal with real world realities. And to be honest, writing flash fiction often serves as a much needed distraction from life, society, and politics, which these days can be very disturbing.

So I suppose I could update my tagline to include flash fiction. But “Random Musings on Life, Society, and Politics, Plus a Lot of Flash Fiction” sounds kind of awkward, don’t you think?

    How about, “Random Musings on Life and Politics, Plus a Lot of Flash Fiction from a guy who has dropped out of Society”.

    Not really. But, maybe do it this way to set off the different part:

    “Random Musings on Life, Society, and Politics… Plus a Lot of Flash Fiction”

    I don’t remember the day, but one day, maybe a year or two ago, I stopped worrying about awkward headlines.

      Maybe I should stop worrying, too.
