How Should a Flash Fiction Story End?
WALMART: I LOVE YOU is fast approaching. November 30th and please send me your blog urls ahead of time so I don't scramble at the last minute. Just your general url is fine. Aldo said two people had advised him of a story to post so if anyone else plans to use Powder Burn Flash, please let him know.
Speaking of this, I wanted to talk about flash fiction stories. Do you think, more than any other form of fiction, they need to end with a surprise ending or at least something "flashy." Should they be called "flashy fiction" as well. I'm near the end of mine, but can't think of a grand finale. What are your expectations? Is it all about the end in an 800 word story?
