I am in the climax of this intricately woven Kusi, basket of a J.J.C (Johny Just Come) story. I haven’t turned a page yet on the captivating story titled “Somewhere New”.The story ends, before I turn a new leaf.
According to the Author, Josephine Attafuah, Flash Fiction is the name of her genre. The above story was recently published in an international magazine.
When I asked her what is flash fiction, she taught me that it is the last born of stories. So we have Flash Fiction which can has even 50 word count or less, then last but one born short story, then a novelette and Ogboro novel. You see that thing?
‘ I started writing at a very young age. As far as I remember, I was in class three then. I was walking home with my friend after school all of a sudden I found myself telling her a story from my head. I claimed I had written it but I hadn’t. I then had to go home, sat down and wrote the full story for her to read the next day and that was how it started”
