Flash fiction, micro fiction, short shorts: this is the short story distilled to its very essence, less than 1000 words in length and often much shorter. We were lucky enough to be able to explore this world of the tiny story, which was not, contrary to rumour, invented by the Internet generation, but has been on the scene for decades. And then we wrote our own complete short-short story in a process that was as "flash" as the product!
