I’ve been going to a writers group here in my local community. There are six of us “regulars” now which is great considering this is a very small town. We’ve been writing mainly about our town, but may be branching out as the months go by.
We usually create a list of prompts, then choose one at random each week. Recently the prompt was “Rumors about our small town” . . . . and as it turned out we decided to write about that at home. Sometimes we get so busy talking at our meetings we don’t get around to writing!
My inspiration was to write a flash fiction story about green aliens. Rather than write about a real rumor going around town, I wanted an outrageous rumor so I could show how inaccurate they can be. It was a lot of fun.
This story and the rest of our articles and poetry will be in an anthology… not sure when that will be published but when it is, I’ll let everyone know.
