Becoming a Writer
Imagination is the key – this is a highly fertile ground for the seeds of any story to germinate, and all that you have to do is to give it free range. Each of us has an imagination, and we are limited only by our ability to give it the time and space to blossom. As an example I was asked, a week or so ago, to come up with a piece of flash fiction of around 400 words on a theme of my own choosing. Flash is not a style which comes readily to me, but an idea popped into my mind and I ran with it.
