Flash Fiction

Yesterday in writing for non-print class, we kind of talked about flash fiction, but not really. I almost felt like I should have spoken up more while we were on the topic, but it really didn't relate to what seemed to be the main goal of the discussion so I just kind of let it go. I figured this would be a cool place to talk a little bit more about it (assuming I'm doing this whole blogging thing right).

Flash fiction is one of my more favorite types of writing, as I said in class before writing use to be one of my favorite past times. It's just really simple to get started because you really don't have to go really in depth with anything. When you're done, you're done and what you see is what you get. If some one reads it, it almost leaves a lot to the imagination, so the reader gets to fill in a lot for themselves. I think that's what i like about it so much.


  1. Mind showing me an example of Flash Fiction sometime, Mr. Fockler?

    1. Sure, i can recommend some places. some of them aren't that great, but a lot of the ones that i've read are suppose to be the type of story that makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck, "scary"...sort of.
