What is flash fiction and why would I want to read it? That is an excellent question. In the time it has taken you to pick up, look at this book, read the front and back cover, and momentarily browse it--you could have finished a flash fiction story. Flash fiction is typically less than 1,000 words in length. Imagine a full-length story being condensed into less than 1,000 words. The author still has to develop the plot, characters and story line, and conclude--all under 1,000 words. The beauty of flash fiction is its ability to get "straight to the point" and carry you along with a story, but done in a bite sized amount of time. Let's face it, time is valuable.
