Most of the time, we’re all just trying to put one foot in front of the other, hoping we don’t trip over ourselves. Or someone else. Or fall backwards into a muddy puddle.
Just over a year ago, as I was staring at my feet and trying not to fall, I wrote a flash fiction story – my first – that went on to win a writing contest. Since then, I’ve written eleven more flash fiction stories. And I didn’t even know I could write flash fiction. This little 1500-word story revealed a facet of myself I didn’t even know was there.
To honor this little-story-that-could, I’m re-posting it here today. I hope it touches you as much as it’s touched me.
