My old gran's at Flash Fiction Chronicles


As part of my plan for world domination, I've started doing regular columns on other blogs.  Mostly, I'll be writing new articles, but every now and then I'm going to throw in a personal favorite, like 10 Things My Old Gran taught me about writing, which is now up at Every Day Fiction's blog, Flash Fiction Chronicles.
 

If you missed it before or enjoyed it so much the first time that you'd like to read it again, here's the link.

What a clever granny you had! Mine wore a pointy black hat and kept trying to fatten me up for some reason...

On the plus side, I now know where the expression about the frying pan and the fire came from.

So there's a bit of personal experience
in every story you cook up?

It's nice for the readers to have something to chew on.

You're a regular man-about-town, Jon. Have you been fitted for your tuxedo yet? You know, for when you get asked to host the Oscars with Billy Crystal. ;)

Number 10, definitely, though all of them area a bit persnickety.

I tend to take a walk through all ten during the various drafting stages.

I think we all do; just that some stages are more striking then others, at various times.
