Quick Fiction, sometimes known as Flash Fiction, is a very short piece of writing of around 300 words. It could just be a written image, a memory or perhaps a thought that has been on your mind for a while. As a starting point for writing your own Quick Fiction, you will be turning to your favourite literary characters for inspiration. After all, one can certainly feel that fictional characters are as alive to us as our real friends are. Charles Dickens, for instance, reputedly received an angry stream of letters blaming him for the death of Little Nell in The Old Curiosity Shop. Please bring along your favourite extracts from literature to share with the group.
