The #FridayFlash Report – Vol 3 Number 40

We had 40 stories in the Collector this week with 1 Debut. Please welcome Janel Gradowski to the community. The stories this week fall under 10 different genres; the most common this week are Fantasy, Horror, and Science Fiction. What a wonderfully diverse community we have!

Based on a review of the I Write #FridayFlash page, I’ve added a couple more genres to the Collector form: Noir, Non-Fiction, and Urban Fantasy. Since it remains the intention of Friday Flash to present flash fiction, I hesitated to include Non-Fiction as a choice. But I recognize that we sometimes write memoir or real-life events of interest to the Friday Flash community. And real life sometimes makes for a pretty good story. As long as those are still within our recommended limit of 1000 words or less, I want you to be able to label them accurately.

As always, if your story is not in the listing below please go to the Collector and add the details. It will be in next week’s listing. ~Tim
