Each year in November, it’s National Novel-Writing Month, AKA Na-No-Wri-Mo. Each year in October, I consider participating. Will this be the year?

If you’re trying out new creative challenges this month, and you’ve never tried flash fiction before, perhaps now’s a good time. If you’ve tried it in the past–or if you’re proficient–have you done any lately?

What is flash fiction? The usual definition is fiction shorter than 2,000 words. But in that category, believe it or not, there are shorter-length challenges, too. Try 300 words.  One hundred words. Even two sentences, like the Two-sentence Horror Stories I reblogged a few Octobers ago. How short can you go?
