Subject: I see what you mean.

Thing is, I know myself, and it's very, very likely I'd almost always be landing further toward the 500 word mark than the 250 one. But yeah, 1-3 times per week, depending on the week, is more something I could manage, I think.

The other issue is just...having that capability to sit down and write right now. I've mostly managed to write bits here and there--sometimes even a lot!--after a period of almost no writing at all in March and early April, but it's still going in and out sometimes depending on what else I have to deal with. Some weeks I'm mostly doing bits of plot or writing that isn't exactly in a doc with the idea that something will be made of it. I like the idea of the flash fiction, but I'd be surprised if I consistently did it even a full three times in a week, especially since it wouldn't be my only writing project.

...which I've just realized you basically covered under "spoons". Whoops. This was meant to be a quick response, and it's coming after spending an hour and a half straight on what's essentially a little historical research essay for work (funnily enough, it's currently clocking in at 599 words. Not quite flash and not at all fiction, but somewhere vaguely in the ballpark? :P)

Anyway. Hopefully that all makes sense. If it doesn't or something looks strange, let me know and I'll clarify.
