Today I’m going to try drafting a piece of flash fiction with a historical content, similar to this piece by Laura Besley:

I love the way she begins at a point of tension and turns the story at the end with the briefest of very emotional vignettes. Smashing, and so economical! But what I love most is that she uses history and family history, at that, to illustrate very human conditions. I love history and I have learned a lot about it by exploring my own family’s stories. So this is a great example for me.

Do you have informing texts you want to emulate? Please share, if you do!

Have fun, and let’s check in with each other! Catch me by twitter @gbaileymershon or on Facebook/glendabaileymershon! See you in print!
