bookw-2250364_1280If you like writing short fiction, need a break from your novel, or just want a challenge, flash fiction may be the right form for you. I had read about these stories of less than 1,000 words as scrolled through writing advice blogs, but I didn’t consider writing one until I picked up some copies of Splickety magazine at a conference.

I still haven’t written a flash fiction piece, but now that I’ve written a short story in just over 3,000 words, flash fiction isn’t as daunting as I first thought.
