Silence


Liz Hedgecock lives in the north of England, and fits in as much writing as she can in the spaces between work and childrearing. She writes mostly short stories, but is also working on something longer. She’s thrilled to be part of the FlashDogs writing community, which has recently released its first anthology.

What surprising, fascinating stuff can you tell us about the origin, drafting, and/or final version of “Silence”?

The story of Silence came first, as a response to a photograph of a door. Its supporting columns were written much more quickly, through reflecting on why I had written the story I had. I was amazed at how much biographical information I had managed to include in a story about a monk, and that has made me think about my own writing process.
