After working so hard all year to get my short stories out, I suddenly have two Flash Fiction stories published in the same month.
This story was inspired by a documentary narrated by David Attenborough. I can’t say too much, because it will be a spoiler, but suffice it to say that it wasn’t a documentary about the end of the world.
The Great Slowdown
This story was dragged out of my head for a time travel anthology. Well, I actually came up with a different flash fiction time travel story, which I worked on for ages, but then I decided that it would be better as a longer story, so I ditched it and at the last minute came up with ‘The Great Slowdown’ instead. It wasn’t selected for the anthology, but I was still happy with it, so sent it off and it was picked up straight away.
Hope you enjoy these. I have a much longer piece coming out, which I’m SUPER excited about. But until I have the publication date I won’t mention anything. I probably need to sign the contract first as well.
