I’m trying my hand at a very challenging form of fiction writing known as flash fiction.
Flash fiction is characterized by extreme brevity. It’s also known as micro fiction or short short stories.
While there is no hard and fast word count that qualifies a work as flash fiction, generally it’s less than 1,000 words.
I’ve gone “All In," as they say around my neck of the woods, and embraced the 100-word story. Yep, I’m trying to tell meaningful stories about college or sports in 100 words. Exactly 100 words for each and every story.
This is going to save you a lot of time. I’ve already done the math and figured out that it will only take you 24 seconds to read one of my 100-word stories. (You can thank me later.)
I’ve hooked up with the folks at Flash Fiction Magazine to create a site for sharing my 100-word stories and blogging about the experience. Every blog entry and every story at this site is exactly 100 words.
Stop by and check out my flash fiction site. That is, if you have 24 seconds to spare.
