“Random Writes” and Why I Love Them

Flash fiction (or quick writes or the like) is something I’d like to explore more. I’ve done a few for contests, but not just for the sake of doing it.

I have also heard these referred to as “flash-fiction,” “quick writes,” or even “warm-up writing.”

I have a folder on my computer titled “Random Writes,” which I’ll write in whenever my brain feels like writing something new. Mine tend to be fiction, mostly narrative types, but I also do this with poems. Random writes are a great way to lay down some creative energy when, say, in the middle of line editing a novel.
