The Snowflakes of Time

‘The Snowflakes of Time’ is a 352-word flash fiction.

I wrote this story for the Firewords Quarterly Issue 4 winter theme submission call. The story or poem had to include or be inspired by the sentence: “When the snow finally stopped falling…” For my story, I decided to link the snow with the passing of time, and that’s how I came up with my final story.

I’m very pleased with this story, especially since it’s my first story to feature in a literary magazine. The story shows how much I have grown as a writer, and I’m looking forward to seeing it in print.
