I flashed this weekend.

Those of you who aren't writers are scratching your heads right now, thinking, what in the heck is she talking about?

Those of you who are writers might have some inkling, but still might be wondering at the definition of the word 'flashed' as the verb in that sentence.

Those of you who are familiar with Liberty Hall Writers and the weekly flash challenge, you know exactly what I'm talking about.

Voting isn't through quite yet, so I can't reveal anything about the story here, where people might be able find out whose story is whose. But I felt it was a pretty good story, with a few little holes that it shouldn't take long to plug.

But back to explaining.

"I flashed..." means that I wrote a flash fiction story in less than 90 minutes as part of Mike Munsil's weekly flash challenge over at Liberty Hall Writers. You can find a link over there. No, on the left. Down there in the "Links for Writers" section. To fully participate at Liberty Hall, you have to be accepted as a member. If you're a writer who is serious about refining your craft and who is interested in having a rollicking good time once a week or once a month or once in a while, Liberty Hall and its flash challenges are just the thing for you.

Give it a try. It's exhilerating!
