May - It started out really well and I wrote a piece a day. Some were okay, others not, but I was writing and that was the main thing. I put the 'best of the week' up onto my blog and people started leaving some really encouraging comments.
June - I started to struggle a little, so decided to cut it down to five a week (Monday to Friday).
July - I took most of July off as I was back in England visiting friends and family.
August - It was summer school at work and for those of you who are teachers, you know what this means! We took a four-day trip to Bali and I wrote every day whilst I was there and found myself fascinated by the country and its people.
September - I discovered FridayFlash.org - a great website for Flash fictioneers. Through this website I've met lots of wonderful and supportive fellow flash fiction writers.
November - Flash Fortnightly on the Artipeeps website was launched.
December - With the end of term looming and many parent presentations to do, as well as being tired from a long semester of teaching, I found writing quite a slog.
January - Started off slowly, but once I got going I found that I was able to write quite a lot.
February - I was lucky enough to be able to take a holiday in Cambodia in February and that influenced a lot of my writing in February.
March - I've just written story number 200!
I'm absolutely in love with flash fiction and I've even started writing micro fiction (up to 100 words). I never thought I'd take to short pieces, but I guess you don't know these things until you try them. While there are no hard and fast rules about writing, I think we all agree that writing often is good. Writing every day is the best and even if you don't have much time, 30 minutes a day is better than no minutes a day. I think, I hope, that writing so regularly has helped me develop as a writer.
