Flash fiction is a short form story, usually of under a thousand words. It can be difficult to completely tell a story in such a small space, but it can also create an intense and riveting story.
Some exercises to try:
- In 500 words or less, tell the story of Sleeping Beauty’s worst nightmare and how it came true.
- In 200 words or less, tell the story of how Cinderella’s life was ruined by marrying the prince.
- In 100 words or less, tell the story of Red Riding Hood, vampire hunter.
