Initial revision by (deleted user) · 2019-12-08T07:32:12Z (7 months ago)
I recently saw a contest for writing flash fiction - the contest rules were that it had to be under 100 words long. I thought "Hey, that's cool! I'll give it a shot."

So I sat down, and tried to start writing something. Emphasis on _tried_ - nothing would come that would work as a super short story. Everything that I started to write seemed like the beginning of an epic fantasy novel (because to be honest, I read a lot of that).

What are some tips for starting to write _short_ stories?
