Criteria for Acceptable Flash Fiction
Is there a definable plot? Do you have a clear beginning? A strong centerpiece? A definitive ending? Does your story make its point and drive it home, hard? Though not all stories need to be forceful to fit into this small genre, it’s a trend that follows flash throughout the years. Still, if your story doesn't have that hard-hitting theme and end by smacking into a wall, don't worry; it's not a necessity.
