Life Matters was designed to provide a space for writing and dialog. The name comes out of life itself. I write about the everyday, significant matters. Therefore: Life Matters.
Life Matters is home to Flash Fiction, Writer’s Reflections and a number of other fiction categories.
I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember and have had articles published in both English and German. It’s been in the past number of years that I’ve begun devoting a great deal of energy to it.
I love the Flash Fiction genre, but it is deceptively complex. It takes time to hone the craft; the process is important. The stories you read in this category are a taste of what appears in a compilation of twenty-five flash fiction stories entitled, Behind Each Face, published in June 2015.
The other genres represented here – verse, 50 and 6 word stories – allow for expression and creativity on another level. You’ll even discover a few audio tracks, taken from the audio version of Behind Each Face.
When I write things that do not belong in a fiction category, I will post them in Writer’s Reflections.
Welcome and enjoy!
