I do like the yahoo group FlashXer. It has been really helpful in writing short stories. If you want to join go to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FlashXer/
I have written a few stories for the group and have received excellent feedback/critiques from the group.
I am still writing my Poem a Day for this month. Sometimes, I use the prompts from Poetic Asides at http://writersdigest.com and sometimes other things inspire me.
I have began another story. I know, I know... I need to concentrate on one story at a time, but sometimes a story won't let go until I get some of it on paper. -Rita
