Fifty Words on Fifty Def­i­n­i­tions of Flash

(def­i­n­i­tions from Dictionary.com)

      40. showy or osten­ta­tious.

Flash, with its empha­sis on each word, does give writ­ers the
chance to be showy. All the how-to-books tell us that such a show dis­tracts. If
we write some­thing bril­liantly, we surely must delete it. It isn’t about us;
it’s about our char­ac­ters. Well, let’s say they’re wrong. Make this one about
you! Strut your writerly stuff.
