Flash fiction, also called sudden fiction, micro fiction, postcard fiction or short-short fiction, is a sub-genre of the short story characterized by limited word length. There is no "official" or exact word limit, but flash fiction stories are generally less than 2,000 words long, and tend to cluster in the 250 to 1,000 word range. "Traditional" short stories range from 2,000 to upwards of 20,000 words in length, and tend to cluster in the 3,000 to 10,000 word range. A good rule of thumb is that a short story (flash or traditional) is meant to be read in one sitting, unlike a novella or a novel. ...more on Wikipedia about "Flash fiction"
