Three Minutes in Heaven
For anyone who’s interested NPR’s flash fiction challenge has come back around. Even if flash fiction isn’t your thing I’m going to strongly suggest you visit their website and Facebook page. The best thing about the challenge are all the comments the readers make as they voice their opinions on the veracity of the finalists. Most of them are insightful, some of them are just plain nuts. If you are a writer in need of a mental boost go check out the comments (and the actual stories, of course).
