Synopsis:

What on earth can I write about?
I've been writing for 5 hours but the plot is going nowhere??
How is Arya Stark so real and my characters sucks??
Should I make this an internal world? Or external? Or internal ...
How do I "be more economical with words" when I've got a whole world?!
I've been writing for 5 hours but I can't decide what calamity should befall the town.
When I write subtly, people say make it obvious. When it's obvious, they say make it subtle??
Noelle Q. de Jesus will answer these and more at this workshop session of AfterWords so you'll leave writing kick-ass flash fiction instead of good flash fiction.

Have a piece of flash fiction you want to share and get feedback? Perfect.

Don't have a piece of flash fiction to share and get feedback? Start writing.
