Keep editing until your work sings. Jamie Freeman
Leodegraunce: Jamie, tell us about your background.
Jamie Freeman: After years of writing artless corporate policies, memos and newsletters, I escaped and began writing fiction about three years ago. I've been producing short fiction and novellas and publishing at a steady clip since then.
Leodegraunce: How long have you written flash fiction and what drew you to the genre?
Jamie Freeman: I am a terrible poet, but I love poetry. Flash fiction allows me to write fiction with the precision of poetry.
Leodegraunce: You write in a variety of genres. What are some of your recent works?
Jamie Freeman: Dreamspinner Press published my novella, The Marriage of True Minds at the end of 2009. Over the past few years, I have had a series of short stories and novellas published in anthologies of erotica, speculative fiction, horror and romance.
Leodegraunce: What are some of your writing plans for 2011?
Jamie Freeman: I feel the need to expand beyond the traditional short story form. I plan to focus on flash fiction and longer novella/novel length works this year.
Leodegraunce: What is your top writing tip for aspiring authors?
