The story as one-liner

The increasing fashion for flash fiction is a great demonstration of how much can be told in a few words.

Ben Myers

"Flash fiction" could only be a relatively modern creation. In the age of channel-hopping, instant messaging and ad breaks designed to jolt you from torpor to spend, spend, spend, flash fiction is a format indicative of these times.

Though its roots run deeper, the popularity of flash fiction seems to have grown exponentially alongside the expansion of the internet and a hunger for instant gratification.

Earlier this year, the Guardian ran a selection of flash fiction stories by renowned authors. The results were decidedly varied, proving that some writers can turn their hand to any literary discipline, while others are better at handling 60,000 words than they are the mere six they had to work with here. Few matched the standard of Ernest Hemingway's standard-setting flash work, a story he called his best ever piece of writing:

Untitled by Ernest Hemingway - For sale: baby shoes, never worn.

What the Guardian piece failed to offer, though, was a concrete definition of what flash fiction is. Wikipedia has flash fiction as "less than 2,000 words long", with "most flash-fiction pieces between 250 and 1,000 words long." This seems to stretch things a bit: for some writers 2,000 words can be an epic. For others it is just enough for an opening sentence.

I prefer the various sub-genres of flash fiction, which include microfiction, the 69er (69 words), the Drabble or - my favourite - 55-word fiction. Fifty-five words is a perfectly reasonable word count with which to tell a story. Fewer is even better. Either way, flash fiction places the onus on the reader to provide their own input. A successful flash fiction story is a seed planted in the reader's imagination, which, once there, should grow and flourish.

There are a plethora of great ultra-short stories out there on the internet. Donald Barthelme and Italo Calvino were economical masters, as was Richard Brautigan who could concoct a scenario, a mood and an outcome in 33 words:

The Scarlatti Tilt by Richard Brautigan "It's hard to live in a studio apartment in San Jose with a man who's learning to play the violin." That's what she told the police when she handed them the empty revolver.

In the US, Mike Topp's comic flash fiction contains the sparseness of a Basho meditation, and the observational, gag-heavy humour of Steven Wright. It's flash fiction that feels no real need to advertise the fact:

My Father by Mike Topp: My father was a snowman. He got depressed and blew his brains out with a hair dryer.

This seems to be a running theme with the very best flash fiction authors: few suggest they actually belong to this genre, they merely feel a few words will suffice.

An old adage says that to become a great prose artist, a writer must first master the art of poetry. In these changing times, I think that can be manipulated to say that a great storyteller should be able to tell a tale within a few sentences.
