"Flash fiction is fiction with its teeth bared and its claws extended, lithe and muscular with no extra fat. It pounces inthe first paragraph, and if those claws aren’t embedded in the reader by the start of the second, the story began a paragraph too soon. There is no margin for error. Every word must be essential, and if it isn’t essential, it must be eliminated." -Kathy Kachelrides
