Ok I published short story, Origami. I had written it in a few hours, after reading the shipping news by Annie Proulx. At the time, I was just thinking about writing in simple sentences. It ended up being a complex whimsical piece about change. I was incredibly surprised that people liked it the piece. Anyway, it was published, I did not check the reviews until two months later. It received low ratings, 2.8 out of 5. Apparently, it was a bit hard to understand. But the written reviews were mostly very positive. I suppose it split readers, those who thought it was pretentious string of words or those who liked the complexity. http://www.everydayfiction.com/origami-by-wanda-wande/
Since then, I have not written much flash. Hunting for ideas and coming up with unique twists aren’t natural for me. Either it is a burst of inspiration or I must have been thinking about it for a long long time before putting words to paper. Furthermore, it has been harder for me to sit down and concentrate. So I have a lot of first paragraphs of flash pieces.
Anyway, take a look at the piece and I hope you enjoy it.
