5 Ways Twitter Helps You Become a Better Writer @sarahbrentyn #MondayBlogs

Sarah Brentyn is a master of flash fiction. For real. I adore her, but a little part of me hates on her just a TEENY bit because she is THAT good at flash. If you haven’t read her book or checked out her flash fiction blog, you need to. You’ll learn more than a lot.
