Flash fiction is an intriguing way for writers to let out their creativity without expending a vast amount of time writing their story as they would to write a novel. Flash fiction stories are more difficult to write due to the limited word count of 1,500 words or fewer.

With a limited number of words to work with writers of flash fiction stories don’t have time to waste on setting, and character creation much less an in-depth plot, and storyline.

Authors of flash fiction stories must grab their reader’s attention from the start and leave them thinking at the end.

Here are some flash fiction stories to grab your attention and leave you using your imagination to create your own stories.
