In case you’re wondering…

Flash fiction defined: “At usually 1,000 words or less, a flash’s language can be as highly inflected as poetry, and it excels at illuminating the quotidian, the subtle, and the seemingly insignificant.” – Family Resemblance: An Anthology and Exploration of 8 Hybrid Literary Genres.

And from Flash Fiction: 72 Very Short Stories, James Thomas writes about flash fiction: “These stories are not tricks, or trills on a flute, rather they are very short stage presentations or musical pieces that play to the full range of human sensibilities — some evoke mood while others provoke the intellect, some introduce us to people we’re interested to meet while others tell us of unusual but understandable phenomena in this world, and some of them do several or all of these things, the things good fiction of any length does.”
