Book Review: 35 Tips for Writing a Brilliant Flash Story: A Manual for Writing Flash Fiction and Nonfiction by Kaye Linden

28568986

Writing flash fiction is something that I have dabbled in. I managed to win one flash contest on LinkedIn, but have yet to have anything else published outside of that one. So when I came across this book I was very intrigued to what Kaye Linden had to offer.

35 Tips is written from lectures and workshops Kaye has given. The 93 pages zip by and are easy to read. She offers exercises for each chapter with plenty of examples. I had a blast writing along with the lesson.

If it says anything about my experience reading this book, I’m looking to submit some flash fiction to a couple of websites and magazines to renew my effort of being published there. 35 Tips has given me a new set of tools to put to use in crafting some fun flash fiction.

Writing flash fiction is a lot different than long fiction, and may not for everyone, but I would recommend reading this book and given it a try. Worse case you can use this as an exercise to make your other writing better.

You can find more information about the book on Goodreads and Amazon.

I was provided a free copy of the book from the author in return for an honest review. This review is my personal opinion.
