APRIL FOOLS? - 100 WORDS - FLASH FICTION CHALLENGE 2019

March 20, 2019

 

 

How about this?  For April / May, try writing a Flash Fiction piece of 100 words. We’ll go longer after this. Too many of these micro-shorts can addle the writer but they are great discipline. 

 

The aim is to delight, to chip out a sculpture from a lump of stone.  

 

You can read some of our writers' stories  or submit your story on the FLASH FICTION section of the COMPETITIONS page of   www.worldwriterscollective.com  

 

Tips:

  • Make the title sweat its short life.

  • Jump right in. Names may not be necessary.

  • The denouement should be in the middle. Leave the reader something to think about at the end.

 

Here are some examples:

A final word: writing micro-fiction is for some, like holidaying in a caravan. Refreshing, stimulating for a change. But not for the rest of your life.
