    Thanks for this Morgen. I find quite a few people have no idea what Flash Fiction or Short Stories involve or even what they are. To tell a story in as few words as possible concentrates the mind, employs creativity on a huge scale and encourages one to delve into that hidden vocabulary, deep in our minds, which we rarely use on a day to day basis. I find it challenging but really enjoyable and I hope those reading it enjoy it as well and are given something to think about when reading pieces. Possibly discovering new words or new ways to use words, describe events and characters in a concise and entertaining way. Thanks for posting this, enjoyed it and it was most welcome.:)

    500 words is a novel compared to my 55 word stories 🙂 I love the challenge of creating a tale in such a small amount of words. I’ve found the success of a piece generally relies on being able to initiate the readers imagination.
