Tips on Writing Flash Memoir

I love writing flash. Whether it’s fiction, non-fiction, or a memoir piece about my former life as a nurse.

What I’ve found as I attempt to write the perfect piece is –  it ain’t easy! Getting to the story in a sharp, succinct manner while packing just the right punch is difficult for the most seasoned writer. I’m still reaching for that star.

Brevity covers this topic in one of the best posts I’ve read in a long time Here’s just a sample of the Don’t tips you’ll learn from,  All’s Well That Ends Well.  

Things to Avoid

  • Summarize
  • Explain
