Flash Fiction

I partook of the weekly Flash Fiction Challenge over at Absolute Write last night. The basic idea is that you are given a randomly-chosen prompt (usually just a word or two). Once you know the prompt you have 90 minutes to write, polish, and post it to a password-protect area of the forum.

It's a fun exercise, one I use occasionally to experiment with different styles or ideas. There's even a market for flash fiction.

My story this week, Holy Nepotism, was a rousing success. So well, in fact, that I'm looking for a market to send it to. It's a humor piece coming in at 327 words. I suppose you could say it has a slight religious theme, since it takes place in heaven, but it's not religious per se.

Y'know, I'd seen this term before but hadn't known what it meant. Just another name for short-shorts, it seems, but hipper *g*

Congrats on finishing one you like! I should give it a shot... which means I'll likely end up with something less than 5000 words, a worthy goal.

Yeah, we like our labels :) Short-shorts, drabbles, flash. I think I've even heard the term micro-drabble thrown around.

In any case, I've found that there is a pretty good (and pro-paying) market for flash fiction.
