Here’s a flash fiction writing tip that you may find useful. You know the old saying that there are two sides to a coin or there are two sides to every story. Those two sayings have a lot of truth in them, especially for the flash fiction writer.
Every story is about resolving some issue. The most basic situation is an issue between two people. And since the flash fiction story is so short, a writer really only has room to fully bring to life about two people. I’m not saying that a writer should limit his or her story to two characters. I’m just saying that you can tell both sides of a story through just two people.
See what I mean?
I hope this writing tip helps. There are a lot more tips on this blog. Feel free to explore.
