First lines: Her name was Beth. We took her car and headed to Missouri from Chicago. First line: When your wife dies, you find music tastes different and food sounds the same.

Partly I did this as a stress relief from writing novels. With "flash fictions" I limited composition time to an hour or less. My stories, especially these short short stories, are unplanned. They are "seen" spontaneously in the blank screen of the inner eye.
