Flash Fiction For Fun

Are you ready for the challenge?

 

It’s true we all love to linger over a favourite novel in comfy slippers and a cup of hot cocoa, but if it’s 50, 100, 200, 300 or up to 1000 words, a well-crafted story can pack a mighty punch.  

 

Even at  100 words a story can zing. It’s all in the showing (and telling), using the ABDCE structure:  action, background/ inciting action, development/rising actions, climax, ending (the characters should be significantly different).

It's FREE to enter, so you may as well enter just for fun.
