It is defined as fiction which is extremely brief, typically only five hundred words or fewer in its entirety. Generally I tend to go for something a little longer, usually around a thousand words. I rarely host my own because I’m a bit flaky when it comes to remembering to post things on a regular deadline, but I like to participate if the prompt catches my imagination.
This page contains links to my various flash pieces, separated by length, connection to a published world, or guest posts. These are generally barfed up quickly, depending on the terms of the prompt, and are meant to be fun little exercises. If you see a prompt you like in the links, link your own contribution in the comments!
