Stories Full of Love and Laughter
Flash fiction is a short-short story. Different types range from 5 to 1,000 words. Each flash fiction is a complete story with all the regular elements of plot, conflict, and characters. It’s just brief.
Flash-fiction writer Angela Jane Fountas compares flash fiction to a novel: “It’s like eating a tiny chocolate truffle instead of a 10-course meal—it’s satisfying. But it’s a different kind of satisfaction.”
Dinner for Three
This story was a fun surprise. I started off writing about Jonathan cooking spaghetti, and all of a sudden Parker walked onto the page and sat down for dinner!
Fall is my favorite season and it’s a setting rich for all your senses to enjoy, which made this theme especially appealing. This was my first attempt at writing flash fiction, but it won’t be my last!
