Welcome to RomanticFridayWriters!
RFW is about short short writing or flash fiction (usually 400 words), less for poems, with some romantic element. It's not Romance of the happily ever after variety, but Romantic, where it's about the story, the issue, with some romantic relationship involved. Our stories are edgy, sometimes dark, and often don't have the HEA ending!

- A late 30's time travelling to 25 ever so often...aspiring to write better short stories, novellas and poetry. A paradox of thoughts, moods, desires, named Rekha Seshadri. A crybaby, hyper sensitive, shy soul who has been shaped by life to become resilient and thicker skinned. My brain is like a tiny collider; rational and irrational thoughts hit, miss and leave a messy trail behind that's narcissistically called words & verse. A Chronicle Of Dreams is my writing pad,exercise tool for mind and heart...and Unframed Imprints, a dumping ground for my not so great clicks...Do potter around but at your risk.
