When I tell people I am on Ficlets people ask me are you writing again? I say YES and so much more!

I am reading about loves, losses, deaths, triumphs, fantasy, and something real. Ficlets is something way more then just writing stories! It is a place where you can get into a short story for a split second and live that moment. Maybe get into a whole series. For that second you are that person and you feel what that person is feeling, whether you read it or write it.

Ficlets is also writing about something crazy and off the wall. You might go a long with some traditional storyline then all the sudden some one turns into a vampire or and ex boyfriend or girlfriend shows up. It is very different and I like it that way.

Most of all the stories don’t technically end. Even if it is a series of stories and you put an ending someone still finds a way to add on. It is not like a book where when the pages end and it is over.

Ficlets is a place to be with a sort of crazy family and do all those things.



  • from Kermitgorf:

    i agree, never ending stories…

  • from Mistress Elsha Hawk:

    One big crazy family!

  • from Lone Writer:

    Hurrah! I agree!

  • from THX 0477:

    Well put. It reminds me of one my earlier ficlets where I was picturing a Captain America sort of character, but since I left it vague the character slowly morphed until, after two or three authors, it was a female, vampiric golem thing.

    yeah you can watch as different or your writings morph over time. kind of like a time tunnel to your past about how you were like
