flash fictionOur Word Journey Writer’s Group has taken on the Flash Fiction Challenge!

Flash Fiction: A self-contained story (beginning/middle/end), 1,500 words or less, that can entertain, intrigue, and satisfy a reader. Seems easy enough, right? But, there’s a lot more to it than you might think!

Part poetry, part narrative, Flash Fiction (also known as “sudden fiction,” “micro fiction,” “short short stories,” and “quick fiction”) is a genre that is deceptively complex. Distilling experience into just a few pages, forces writers and readers to pay close attention to every loaded conversation, every cruel action, every tender gesture, and every last syllable in every single word.
