Flash fiction is an ultra-short story format (usually 1,000 words or less) that distills a narrative into its most economic and impactful form. John Gillard, author of The Very Short Story Starter, says it best: ‘In flash fiction, every word must earn its breakfast.’ Popular with creative writers around the world, flash fiction’s word-count constraint presents stimulating challenges that refine your writing skills and invite you to think differently about how to tell a story.

This lay-flat paperback workbook contains 101 writing prompts crafted to inspire an incredible variety of very short stories. Some prompts instruct you to focus on setting or developing a specific character. Other prompts ask you to play with story structure; to begin at the end or jump right into the middle of the action. You are also encouraged to bring the journal to different locations (a coffee shop or a museum) and take story cues from your surroundings. With a variety of writing tips and just the right space to draft your prose, this journal is the perfect tool to jump-start a flash fiction writing practice, and a wonderful gift for writers looking to refine their craft.
