Over the past couple of months I have been doing my best to regularly participate in creative writing groups across the web. I not only find it enjoyable to write in a fictional fashion, I also enjoy reading from the huge pool of short stories.

Both Fiction Friday, by Write Anything, and #FridayFlash, by JM Strother, present a variety of reading material each week. There is so much content produced that I simply can’t keep up with both groups in a single day and spend time throughout the weekend catching up.

One of my favorite parts of the weekend is waking up early, putting on a pot of coffee, and heading down into my office to enjoy a cigar and read these excellent creations of flash fiction.

Being the author of a small personal blog, I know how frustrating it can be to produce content and not get much feedback. I try to share a little link love each week, on Twitter, and try to get a few more eyes on the pieces I enjoy reading. I don’t share links to these stories hoping to get some return linkage (which would be great), I do it because I genuinely enjoy reading them and wish to share. It is for the same reason that I “Share” links in Google Reader as well.

I find that each week I spend a lot of time looking up Twitter names to include with my links. For that reason, I’ve decided to make a list for myself. On that list, I’ll be including the name of the blog and the Twitter account associated with it. I’m also breaking the list down into categories so that finding a name on the list is a little easier.

While this list may be for my own purposes, I hope you get some use out of it. In the event that you would like to be added, simply leave a comment with the name of your blog, a link to your blog, and a link to your Twitter account. I’ll try to incorporate all of the submissions.
