“Your stories are too short.”
“I want to know more!”
“What happens after that?”
“I would have liked some more description so that we get to know the people and place better.”
It’s not uncommon for me to get responses like this to my writing, and so I snapped up the term ‘Flash Fiction’ as soon as I came across it. “I write flash fiction,” I tell myself (usually, no one else). “Not short stories; flash fiction.”
Having come across this delightful term not more than a few months ago, I began trawling the internet for famous writers of flash.
And I came across one. I need to say nothing about her.
Read Tolulope Popoola. It is almost addictive.
The only thing that made me stop was ridiculously slow internet.
A collection of her flash fiction is also available on Kindle.
