What is the main difference between Flash Fiction and just a creative fiction short story?


I am wondering exactly what is the difference between Flash Fiction and a regular creative fiction short story ... is it just that Flash Fiction is a lot shorter or a certain amount of words?

    I'd love to join an online flash fiction group! One of my favorite genres.

    Hi AP ...Thank you for answering and, yes, Chris knows his stuff. You should check out his flash fiction. He is an amazing writer.

    Now that's spooky that the attention spans are getting shorter rather than expanding. With all of the good information on the planet that is an astounding observation. Reading increases the ability to hear and listen in depth and is necessary.

    Hi Chris, thank you for helping me to understand FF so much more. I knew it just couldn't be word count! I love that "unique relationship" and "different kind of crafting". Your answer is truly best ...but alas too late, but great! God bless
