Not too long ago, I popped on Button Floozies to write about Flash Fiction, Button Style. This is an interactive feature on my website where readers email me a picture of a button and I write that button's story. In keeping with the Flash Fiction genre, I limit the story to 250 words. To prevent me from spending way too much time on it, I also limit myself to one hour.
It's fun to see what emerges from these limitations.
Today I'm excited to share my latest Button Flash. It features a determinedly colorful button set in an even more colorful background. This picture immediately reminded me of a carnival and I decided the button belonged to a seamstress for a troupe of aerialists.
Here's a picture of the button, which was sent in by Buttons By McAnaraks. If you'd like to read the story please click here!
