National Flash-Fiction Day

In celebration of the build-up to National Flash Fiction Day 2012 I am encouraging submissions of extreme flash-fictions. Flash-fiction has many definitions and can range from short stories under 1000 words to under 50 words.

The challenge I am setting is to write short stories that are 100 words or less. To kick start this, I have put up my own submission, Apple Tree, which you can read shortly…

Writing stories of such a concise length makes you think about the importance of every single word, and is a great exercise to improve your writing skills. So get thinking and get writing. And whilst you’re at it, get looking at the official National Flash-Fiction Competition.
