I’m just going to run pass you a few things on how I write my flash fiction. If you find anything useful for writing your own flash fiction, great.
I seldom write a story that has no dialogue in it. I’ve done it, but that is not my signature if you know what I’m talking about. That’s because dialogue gives an immediacy to a story that nothing else can.
I spend very little time telling the reader what is going to happen, what kind of people the characters are and what the conflict or tension in the story is. The characters interacting with each other takes care of all of that.
And finally, I want the reader to finish the story and to sit back and to think, I bet the writer based this story on a real event.
Most of the time I do.
That’s how I write a flash fiction story.
