    1. Thanks! It’s called flash fiction due to the length – they are generally stories of 1, 500 words or less (I settled on the cap of 1,000). This is the fifth year I’ve been publishing these little tales, and I once had a submission – which I ended up publishing – that was just over 300 words. (Just for fun, there is a type of story called a drabble. They have a word count of 100 words or less. They are a challenge to write!)

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
