WRITE and LINK
is a new link-up party here, on In The Writer's Closet, and it is all about writing short stories.
It is not a fashion/style link-up! It is up to you whether you post text only or illustrate your text with images of your choice.

I do encourage you to write fiction, but if you are inspired to write a personal essay (non-fiction), I won't mind. The most important is to have fun writing - play with it! The button for reading other stories and adding yours can be found at the end of my story. My story came to me in the form of flash drama - about 1500 words. Enjoy reading, and I am really looking forward to reading your stories!
