Flash Fiction 55 Friday

From Mr KnowItAll's blogsite
Complete a story in 55 words:  Flash Fiction is fiction of extreme brevity. In a few words the story thread must hold the plot together. There is no widely accepted definition of the length of the category.

Geoff and Gillian were Cyberspace Lurkers surfing Blogland and Internet Forums. Never commenting, they were happy to let someone else say what was on their mind. Then one day they caught one another’s eye.  It was love at first sight. Unable to resist sharing their news and views, they never looked back from then on.


This is my first go at flash fiction.
Comments please :O)

  1. Perfect. Beginning, middle and end. I really enjoyed it - the world of internet dating always fascinates me!

  3. That's a start for some compelling characters, but flash fiction doesn't allow to flesh out characters very much.

  4. Hi Lee
    My compelling character was inserted with my Blogfeast post rather than the flash fiction as I agree you can't really flesh out characters in FF.
