LISP 4th Quarter 2020 Official Selection Flash Fiction, 'Bad News Discussion' by Nick Fordham

Can you tell us about your daily life?

I work as a doctor, and am passionate about providing the best care I can to children and families undergoing the most difficult challenges of their lives. Ideally, I am found near a microscope, in the haematology laboratory. When not at work I am shepherding two small children around our house, and finally, when the house is quieter, I try to write stories.

When did you start writing? How often do you write?

I have always loved writing, and have made a start on many novels, as yet unfinished. I have written a middle grade children’s book, which I am trying to publish at present, and have started my second. My working schedule, however, means I have less time to write than I would like, and I try (and fail) to write most evenings.

How does it feel to have your work recognised?

Surprising. Very surprising.

Can you please give us a few tips about writing a flash fiction story?

I do not feel that I am in a position to give advice! And, I am not sure people should listen to my writing advice. I guess, though, if you love writing — like I do — just try to find some time to write something when possible. It doesn’t have to be the most beautiful, groundbreaking story, just something for you.
