recently i joined "A Year of Flash", to get back to flash writing. this now lead to the first 2 stories:
- Slices - a story from Berlin - that's also where the photo is from, a view of Brandenburger Gate (which was closed off during the time of the wall) and the Funkturm (in Berlin East, it is next to Alexanderplatz), both seen from the street of 17th June (which belongs to Berlin West, the street name is a dedication to the uprising of the East Berliners on 17 June 1953 -wiki-link).
this story was induced by the theme: "Red Meat" (max 25o words)
- White - this is really just a slightly subversive little flash story that plays with the situation of a psychological test, i thought first. but the more i think of it, the more layers this story has. in some ways, it even is a reflection on the whole idea of flash group writing: there's a weekly theme, and then 20-40 writers write a story, and then share it... what do the different stories, all based on the same key idea, then tell about the authors?
this story was induced by the theme: "Union of Opposites" (max 25o words)
