This month Mr B and I are taking part in #BlogFlash2012, run by Terri Giuliano Long, and – every Friday – #FlashFiveFriday at The Indie Exchange.
The idea behind #BlogFlash2012 is simple: 30 Days, 30 Prompts, 30 Posts. Every day there’s a new visual prompt and you have to produce 50-100 words on the theme. The beauty of it is, you can produce anything from a simple anecdote to a piece of flash fiction.
There’s also a Facebook page so you can follow along and swap links.
I am also taking part in NaBloPoMo August.
#BlogFlash2012: #11 Greed
One of the Seven Deadly Sins and one I do my best not to be guilty of. As a writer, I hope to be successful but I have no desire to have the millions that the likes of JK Rowling have. That’s not what writing should be about.
If you offered me the chance to write full-time, earn enough money to live then I would accept without question. I wouldn’t know what to do with millions in my bank account. It would likely end up donated to various charities that really need it.
I admit I can be greedy. A cheeky cake to go with the latte. An extra glass of wine. Another new book. All things I could do without. I like to think that when it counts, though, all thoughts of greed vanish. My husband and I sold our wedding rings to pay for vet treatment our cat urgently needed. We reasoned that love is not bound up in a possession but in what we feel for one another – what we do for one another. Saving our cat bound us more than those rings ever could and therefore means much much more.
