Sunday Flash Fiction

Like fiction? Well you are at the right place with lots to read, good bad and ugly 😀 In an effort to make it easier for you to find my 200 word stories I have listed them here. Going a step further, like the Friday Flash (and other short story pages here), I have included snippets and color coded them too.  Green (light and dark green 😉 for my personal favorites, orange not bad but perhaps you would take the time to read and let me know where it really stands, blue women stories, purple for humorous ones (I think!), pink for kid speak and black for studied silence for fear of incriminating myself.
