Flash Everywhere I Look

I've written about flash fiction before, and now I'm going to write about it again.

This morning I decided I was going to take another shot at writing some flash fiction for my two page May Days goal. But first I thought I'd do a little flash research on the subject. Wouldn't you know it, today is National Flash-Fiction Day in the UK. The Brits also came up with World Book Night, known as Book Day over there, evidently. They come up with the best celebrations. Even Boxing Day sounds good to me.

What's more, in a British newspaper I found the best flash fiction how-to I've ever seen. Though, quite honestly, "don't use too many characters" is good advice for any kind of short story.

Not a Flash in the Pan is a quite good Q&A with some flash fiction writers and editors that appears in the latest issue of WOW! Women on Writing.

So, really, it looks as if I chose a good day to become interested in this subject again.
