As Sky introduced Flash Fiction, lo a year ago, "flash fictions are stories that pride themselves on being short, really short. Providing it has a beginning, middle and an end, even a sentence can tell a story. A typical example is this one by Augusto Monterroso:

So let's make storytelling fun. We have Rory's Story Cubes (storytelling picture dice) and each week we'll be rolling them and giving you 3 random items. Now you create a tiny story of 30 to 50 words with them! Your story can be funny, serious or completely random: from a simple 'this is how the day started' to finding out that the butler really did do it - in a galaxy far, far away! Write about anything you like -- but you need to include all 3 items and have a beginning, middle and end in your story. Use the dice rolls for that particular week (no going back and using previous ones). And always, keep the HOL rules in mind at all times.
You’ll earn 15 beans per story so put your imaginations in gear!
