Flash fiction

Flash fiction is fictional work of extreme brevity that still offers character and plot development. Identified varieties, many of them defined by word count, include the six-word story, the 140-character story (also known as "twitterature"), the "dribble" (also known as the "minisaga"; 50 words), flash fiction (1,000 words), nanotale, and "micro-story".

Book Baby published this great article on how to practice flash fiction. Sometimes we struggle to reach high word counts, but other times we can go on forever. Flash fiction is about making every word count, and using as few as possible to convey a compelling story. Practicing flash fiction can help us write better long pieces, as it forces us to treat every word as necessary--a quality words in novels should have but sometimes don't.
