S.M.A.G. Kindness Among Bloggers

Bold, driven and fabulous, Sacha Black is the energy and inspiration behind the Bloggers Bash event, its awards, and competition. As an author of a YA sci-fi series, she’s learned much about weird scientific phenomenon and villains. Sacha created a workshop series in book and text about how to create one of a book’s most crucial character — not the hero, the villain.  She’s also a Rough Writer.

This week’s Rough Writer Tour Around the world is back at Sacha’s pad in England. She has an excellent lesson in flash fiction prepared for you so hop on over there!

    Sacha is a great ambassador for writing flash fiction. I also love the way she gets people together, bringing the online community into the reality of flesh and blood “in person” with the Bloggers’ Bash.
