Short And Sweet – Relevance of Flash Fiction And Micro-Fiction

Short And Sweet – Relevance of Flash Fiction And Micro-Fiction.jpg

Considering that most people skim online content – which reflects our fast past way of life – Flash Fiction and Micro-Fiction has become a more relevant part of our reading and writing experience.
Flash Fiction – short stories between 100 and 1000 words – and Micro-Fiction – very short stories under 100 words – are a fantastic way to get a readers attention.It fits perfectly into the new reading habits, allowing the reader to find great content, without having to invest much of their time.  Creating a complete story within this short space, however, forces writers to think outside the box.

I personally find Flash Fiction to be a great exercise in being concise. In such a small space, one has no option, but to engage the reader with every word. Micro-fiction, such as 6-Word-Fiction or Twitter-Fiction make use of the content streams of social media applications, no need for a blog, or website.

 

Writers should take advantage of the attention-grabbing potential of this type of fiction, as it can be used as a gateway and advertisement for lengthier works.

 

Happy Writing!

Twitter Fiction

I @homeschoolwitch (you can call me Claudia) am going to take the plunge into the dark abyss called Twitter Fiction Festival going on from March 12th till March 16. Now that was an impulse decision, but I have been fascinated with twitter fiction for a while now, not quite sure if I could write an entire story on such a small space. Just like with Flash Fiction, I thought jumping right into the midst of it would be the best way to go.

That decision already brought me to some wonderful participants (and a lot more people to follow on twitter) whom from tomorrow on will be posting stories and visual projects all over twitter. It will be heaven for those who want to enrich their twitter feeds with interesting and thought provoking content. People are planning to write horror stories, and romances, the weird and wacky and the serious. A dream for the lovers of the written word.

Personally, I will be using my twitter handle to create a fake breaking news channel, called the “Weird Witches News Network (WWNN)”. I am determined to bring you the best made up news since Fox.

I am going to stubbornly see this through – hoping you will join me tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day
