Flash Fiction

This page serves as an alphabetical index to all my short stories since I have most of them sprinkled throughout the blog, some wonderful, some not so much.  My favorites are listed and linked first. If they’ve been published, they won’t be on my blog but instead I’ve listed in parentheses where the published product can be found.

Please use the search engine or the Categories drop down (under AW Flash fiction or Short stories) to find any unlinked, unpublished ones.

Most of the posts I wrote as “flash fiction” challenge exercises.  They are typically under 1000 words and were conceived, written and edited (ha!) within 90 minutes.  The titles are the theme words that the AW site mod revealed at the start of the 90 minutes.
