What is microfiction?

Look on the Internet and you will find many definitions. It is generally thought to be a subset of flash fiction. For the purpose of this blog I am including all the stories I’ve written that are less than 100 words. The shortest of these are my six-word stories.

Two of my favourites are:

Twitter Fiction – stories of 140 characters or less. There are some great Twitter hashtags that give you a daily prompt. My favourite is #microprompt.

Postcard Fiction – these are usually about 50 words in length and are great fun.
