I've been a student of short stories for almost a decade, but have just discovered this wonderful jewel of flash fiction. I posted two of my pieces to Hubpages: EAST OF TECATE and THE CLEARING. At this point, I;m not sure if I am "doing it right," if there are "rules."
Flash Fiction is such a fun concept. It's quick to write and quick to read. I'm a minimalist, so I appreciate how concise and to the the point they are. One thing I try to accomplish with Flash Fiction is having the ending drive the point home, kind of like a M. Night Shamalan movie.
