I have been writing flash fiction for the past six months and let me tell you its been an amazing discovery and adventure! For the uninitiated, flash fiction is any short story that is shorter than the standard short story, say less than 500 words (note to self: need to check the exact technical specifics) but in short (sorry, just couldn’t resist the pun! Haha) flash fiction is shorter than your average short story.
Flash fiction in a sense is like capturing a moment in time in a photograph.
Then imagine that one photograph containing all the elements of a story: the main character, secondary characters, the plot, and the ending. Its kinda been tricky trying to fit in everything, especially into a 100 words but its been quite fun as well!
Great week in writing one and all!
