My Flash Fiction Story of 1000 Words “Breathe” Was Published Today

  • by

My flash fiction story of 1000 words “Breathe” was published today.

“Breathe” is one of those stories that just poured out of me. I sent it to dozens of magazines before Flash Fiction Online picked it up.

I loved this story and wanted it to succeed so bad, and I’m honored that it was published and made available for the world to see.

It’s a story, like many of my flash fiction stories, about an addict.

Though it takes place in the near future in a world slightly different than ours will be as global warming heats the planet, I think there will always be people like me — addicts who can’t stop fucking up their lives but who have a desperate desire to stop.

It doesn’t appear in the story, but his name is Anvil, and all he wants is redemption.
