Sorry about that non-hypey subject line 😀
Actually, no, I’m not. But even as fiction writers, we’re used to seeing big numbers all the time.
… went from zero to ten million in three months … wrote a book and became an overnight success…
I’m certain that it can happen, but it’s hard to believe that it could happen to you, right?
So when I heard from one of my friends that he wrote a short, flash fiction book and it had made him 30 cents already, it actually made me happy.
For that means potential.
Frankly, I read his book, and the premise is great, it ends in a super cliffhanger, but the story needs editing.
The cover is horrible. Part of the title isn’t even readable.
If you can make 30 cents in that way, it makes you think, doesn’t it?
Anyway, flash fiction is not just for making money. You can also use it to get into a good habit of writing.
Or to train certain aspects of your writing skill.
Or to get good at getting a message out.
Actually, I’m inspired right now, so I’ll finish this email and write.
