What is very short fiction? It goes by many names: flash fiction, very short stories, micro-fiction, mini-fiction, postcard fiction and the Old Soldier has a label too, snap fiction.
The Old Soldier is sure a few labels were missed; but they all have one thing in common. They really are short stories, not sketches and not vignettes but short stories.
Sketches and vignettes have no narrative movement. You start at point A and you end at point A. In a very short piece of fiction you start at point A and you end up somewhere else. It could be at point D or C or even B but there is movement.
There are lots of examples of very short fiction on this blog.
This blog is about blogging, writing, sexuality, news and the pain and joy of life.
