Do you enjoy reading Flash Fiction?
Flash Fiction is defined first as a work of fiction under 1000 words. Second it is not a vignette, but must be a complete story containing a strong plot and a distinct beginning and ending. Is this type of fiction satisfying to you as a reader?
Yes. As an entrant to billybuc's contest, I have to say that don't I?! I think it demands more skill to get a really good story into 1000 words. I love trying to get it right and I love reading others' efforts. A quick read is satisfying and if the piece is expertly written then it's even more satisfying to read. I'll keep trying to attain a higher standard.
Reading FF can also give you ideas for all sorts of writing; developing it for a novel, going off at a tangent for another story and, of course, inspiring you to read more.
You ought to know by now that I love flash fiction, short stories and any other type of story. Any well written story is wonderful. I will read it.
Certainly on HP I would much rather read FF unless it is written in chapters at least a week apart. Anyone publishing 3 or 4 chapters a week I just wouldn't have the time to follow the story.
Let me be frank, there is a difference between an educational subject like science or history and the emotions invested in a long fiction write. The latter requires more time to fully appreciate, generally. And with all we read on Hubs or elsewhere for that matter, and the time involved, it's great to have flash fiction where the enjoyable investment with all the stories components can be taken in with a thousand words or less. So yes, I do enjoy flash fiction, and the longer fiction stories when time allows.
