Intense, urgent and a little explosive ...

The Irish Times today has a piece penned by Declan Burke entitled 'Flash fiction: Intense, urgent and a little explosive'. He very kindly included one of my drabbles - Blood Pumping Quick - as well as a piece by Nuala Ni Chonchuir. I am, of course, delighted with this! For anyone interested in penning a piece of flash fiction, The Irish Times has issued a challenge seeking flash fiction stories of no more than 500 words. They'll publish the best of them. There are no parameters re. genre or focus. There's no set date but stories should be submitted to flashfiction@irishtimes.com. At only 500 words, you've nothing to lose by giving it a go.

Rob - Congratulations! And well-deserved; you wrote a good story there. And thanks for the word about the opportunity to submit one's own writing, too.

Am reading Declan Burke's Absolute Zero Cool at the moment. Very enjoyable once I got used to the style.
