So last week’s Ficlet Friday was driven/inspired by real life (mine) whereas this week’s entry, Unnecessary Accessory, is completely taken from current world events, namely torture, executive power (and privilege) and hubris.
This feels like the start of somethingâ€¦ but Iâ€™d rather see whatâ€™s about to happen than what is actually happening here. In general, for flash fiction, Iâ€™d avoid waffling things like â€œif that even makes sense.â€ Youâ€™d already conveyed the uncertainty just fine.
I dare you to sequelize your own Ficlet, sir!
Consider it done. I’ll give my own work (previous work as well) some thought and try to write a sequel. It’ll be more interesting by half.
I just think I need to realize that the stories should be both self-contained AND able to be prequelized or sequelized. Right now I tend to write like I’m starting a chapter of a novel. Not. The. Case.
Anyhow, please read and rate the Ficlets. I want/need the feedback.
