    Very simply, flash fiction is a very short piece. It is usually understood as being under 1,000 words.

    In some cases, the challenge is to get as close to 1,000 without actually reaching it - so 999 words is the ideal.

    Writing flash fiction is a useful start for a wannabe writer.

      so how hard it is to write one that is only 750 words double spaced?

    Dude, GOOGLE it, there are specifics about it that you have to follow. It's also one of the most difficult things to write well.

    Lomax is correct. It's worth noting that wanna-be writers who write flash fiction teach themselves to get rid of unnecessary words without even realizing they're doing it. This skill transfers to longer works, of course.
