Boy, a tornado hit

tornado-mdA disaster zone, debris and desolation spread as far as she could see.

Stepping over obstacles as she walked, ‘things were normal when I left, what happened?’

Shrugging his shoulders, he was seemingly as lost for an explanation as his mother was.

‘What else can I expect, leaving a toddler alone for five minutes’

        It was a great read partly for that reason – especially as it made me smile. Desolate was such a grim, dark topic that most of us have written stories tinged with horror and pain. Keep thinking outside the box – it creates great work!

        I think there is a trend that needs breaking in the flash genre. While we all seek drama and twists in our writing, I do wonder why we all lean towards negativity over joyful stories.
