About Jim Bronyaur:
There is a great writing community on Twitter called #FridayFlash. The idea is to post a new flash story on Friday and tweet about it. There are about 60-70 writers each week that write and it’s give us a chance to meet new writers, read new stories, etc.
I have stopped posting stories for free since the start of 2011 (which a few minor exceptions) as I prepare for my own book releases, etc. I’ve met so many great people through this short story community and I plan on leaving my stories up forever to give people a chance to sample my writing and enjoy it.
His views on the short story genre:
And reading short stories… this is the time! We have e-readers and a chance to publish work at a price that publishers can’t touch. We are in control, finally. Let’s face it, some people out there don’t want to read novels. And why should those people be banished from the beauty of words? Maybe some people only want to read a short story – 1,000 words. 5,000 words. Maybe even a novella. Maybe it’s all they can commit to and maybe it’s all that they want to read. For me, I say Great! Everyone should read and what better way to be introduced to a new writer than a short story? And to me, any writing is writing and any reading is reading.
