This week, I’m happy to report that I discovered a new source for online short stories. Glossolalia publishes flash fiction, stories of 500 words or less. I enjoy a good bit of flash fiction. I’ve even read stories that were only six sentences. Each story on Glossolalia comes with a photograph. So far, I think they are fitting to the story to which they are paired.
I was perusing through the stories when the photo that accompanied A Design for Life caught my eye. At first, the reader thinks that the narrator is speaking about one thing, but then there’s a twist at the end. That’s right, a 500 word story (or less) with a real, surprising twist at the end. It’s difficult to go more in depth into the story without giving the whole thing away. I suppose that’s a part of reading/review flash fiction. The story is good, interesting with a surprise. Less than 500 words and I’m interested in reading more work by Emma Jones.
