Flash Fiction Fast Facts

The post immediately below this one is an example of flash fiction. Flash fiction is basically a short story that has somewhere between 200 and 1000 words (an honest to gods short story is typically between 2000 and 7500 words). Why is there flash fiction on my blog?

Well, I write for a living, but I'm hemmed in by two things: the facts and the law. Jaunts of fictional fancy are not encouraged in court, so I've been looking to branch out a bit. While working on other stuff, I came across a post on one of the writers' forums I haunt about Flash Fiction Friday. As the link in the post below shows, every Friday a picture is put up and folks submit a piece of flash fiction inpired by that image. The image this week can be found here.

I hope take part in this on a regular basis. Enjoy the tale of Sid and Maury, and be sure and read the other submissions, too.
