The flash fiction piece called Wintering, which appears in the April 2015 issue of Flash Frontier, started its life as a poem. Stumped by the theme of 'Iron', I remembered the last line of my poem, and came back to it. I reworked it, expanded the idea and came up with this 250-word piece. It just shows that with writing nothing is wasted. There is always a time when something can be fine tuned, reworked or expanded into something new.
