Dream Flight (Flash Fiction)

There were times when she would stay up all night watching, waiting for the tell tale flicker of distant lights moving across the dark sky, thinking of all the people coming and going to places she could only dream about.

Maybe, she would think. Maybe one day she too would be a light among the stars.


Sometimes you read a blog post or some random article off the web and something just ‘clicks.’ You can’t really explain it, even showing someone else doesn’t elicit the same response. It is simply one of those rare things which can bring a smile to your lips for no other reason than it exists.

In this case it did have a subject I am interested in, writing. No, it didn’t tell how to write the Great American Novel, not even how to write anything at all but it did tell an engaging tale and spoke to some of the frustrations I have felt.

It was about sharing true life experiences, about how and when such things not necessarily should be shared, but when all of the elements of memory, emotion, recollection and writing ability might come together in a form which could be translated into a book others would want to read.

The question is asked, can such things be shared with the public without destroying them?

The answer is most likely, maybe.
