A Flash In The Pan!

I love to read short stories; as anyone does.  But I also love to read flash fiction.  This is a story which is 1,000 words or less.  It takes you to the very epicenter of the story quickly, throws you into the action, the characters without too much adieu and then, the next thing you know.... it's finished, leaving you all mixed up and wanting more!

Yep, that's flash fiction.  I've been reading it and writing it for a little while now; and love it.  It's great for my editing and style.  And I've been doing challenges on the Terrible Minds blog too, and it's been fun!  And when I've done it, I've linked it back to Chuck's comments log and had other people go to my main strange-writing blog (yeah, I have a blog where all my vampire and weird writing goes) and they can have a read.  Very cool!  Not only does my blog there get a lot of hits, but people get to know what I can write, what I can't write and find out how far my imagination can stretch (gotta thank Chuck on this one as I've begun to get right into writing better).  

I've gotten to the point where I'm looking for books that have flash fiction in them; and today, I found a book with 5 flash fictions in it for free off iTunes.  Do you like flash fictions?  The ones I found on iTunes is horror, however there's different types, which ones are you into?  Until my next post, happy reading!  


  1. Yes, I most definitely like and have read Flash Fiction!! Last year, I read Flashy Fiction and other insane tales and blogged about it.

  2. Very cool! I must have missed it when it first came out and was reviewed by you... darn. And it looks very interesting too! :D
