Read full description of the books 35 Tips for Writing a Brilliant Flash Story: A Manual for Writing Flash Fiction and Nonfiction:Writing flash fiction is something that I have dabbled in. I managed to win one flash contest on LinkedIn, but have yet to have anything else published outside of that one. So when I came across this book I was very intrigued to what Kaye Linden had to offer.
35 Tips is written from lectures and workshops Kaye has given. The 93 pages zip by and are easy to read. She offers exercises for each chapter with plenty of examples. I had a blast writing along with the lesson.
If it says anything about my experience reading this book, I'm looking to submit some flash fiction to a couple of websites and magazines to renew my effort of being published there. 35 Tips has given me a new set of tools to put to use in crafting some fun flash fiction.
Writing flash fiction is a lot different than long fiction, and may not for everyone, but I would recommend reading this book and given it a try. Worse case you can use this as an exercise to make your other writing better.

Bruce Holland Rogers says of "Tales from Ma's Watering Hole:
"First off, some disclosure: Kaye Linden is a graduate of the Master of Fine Arts program of the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts. I teach fiction writing at NILA, and Kaye was my student. I'm not reviewing this book as a stranger, but instead as someone who saw this collection of stories develop story-by-story and draft-by-draft.
Take my review with a grain of salt if you wish.
Kaye Linden's stories are richly imagined, crisply written, and worth your time and money. In the title character, Ma, Kaye has created a character who belongs to the urban world as much as the outback, and who reflects not so much aboriginal culture as original culture, the culture each of us invents for our own purposes from the material of the world we happen to have been born into. Come on in for a drink, a story, and a character who makes her own rules and invents her own forms of magic.
I love this book."
