What is Flash Fiction

A flash fiction story is an extremely short story that has a protagonist, conflict, obstacles or complications, and resolution. The parts of the story can be implied, but flash fiction is not a scene or vignette.

From Wikipedia: "Some self-described markets for flash fiction impose caps as low as three hundred words, while others consider stories as long as a thousand words to be flash fiction."

Generally stories less than 1000 words are considered to be flash fiction.
