Resources for Flash Fiction
A writer can read all the advice in the world, but in the end s/he needs to read actual flash fiction stories to grasp the complexities. As with any literary genre, the two most important forms of practice are reading and writing. By reading, a writer can learn, almost by osmosis, the subtle tricks that go into truly compelling flash fiction stories (or any type of story, for that matter). And, of course, a writer cannot learn to write without actually writing.
