Saddie Hopes has always been an observer, learner, overthinker, muser. A story-lover, she enjoys reading, listening and watching stories unfold. Real or not. Inspired by a talk by Lydia Davis, she has been exploring short forms of writing. A favorite is the prompt-based, flash fiction platform ‘vss365’ (Very Short Story 365) on Twitter. She is still clearly figuring it out - and telling stories as she goes along.
