Also, the layout of the text on the pages was randomly misaligned, such that the margins would vary in width. Some of the pages had the text so near the binding that it only compounded the loose pages issue described above. When I opened the book far enough to make reading the text comfortable, it caused pages to come loose from the binding.
Overall, extremely disappointed with the quality of the print version.
I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting good 'how to' information on writing flash fiction, just don't buy the print version until the author/printer says this issue has been resolved.
I learnt and enjoyed much even though I've been writing flash fiction for years.
I recommend this to anyone who wishes to hone their writing skills or write flash fiction.
As an experienced writer, I’ve benefited from Nancy’s encouraging comments and strategies in Going Short for getting words unto the blank page, adding a spark to a story that seems flat, and trimming the edges to keep the words concise.
Going Short is about creating concise stories (less than 1000 words). Examples are interspersed, and at the end she’s placed 100 prompts for writing flash fiction. Nancy gives you permission to actively eavesdrop, encourages you to play—as if at recess—with your first drafts, and offers ideas on getting published.
If you enjoy reading flash, have been tempted to write it, or want a break from writing novels, give writing flash fiction a try with Going Short as your guide. You will be rewarded!
