We’ve talked about Flash Fiction before on this site but as it is becoming more and more popular we thought we should look at it again. This time we are going to be looking at what you learn from writing flash fiction. At this point we should say that Flash Fiction goes by many different names as TubeFlash points out:
short fiction, concise fiction, micro fiction, micro narrative, postcard fiction, short short, sudden fiction, cut-off fiction and in China it is known as ‘smoke long’.
The important thing to remember is that flash fiction is a story that is very short, normally less than 500, most of the time even shorter.
