A Story by Angela:
What Angela Likes in Flash:
I love stories that do something to me. The language in a story can wake me up, characters can make me consider something I haven’t before, or confirm something we all know in a way that surprises me. A deal breaker for me is a last line that makes the story seem like a joke or adds a twist that makes me feel cheated. I’m looking forward to reading your stories. I know I won’t be disappointed.
