SHOTS

Very short stories are also known as flash fiction, sudden fiction, micro fiction, micro-story, short short, postcard fiction & short short story.

In China they are known as a “smoke long” or “palm-sized” story, with the comparison being that the story should be finished before the reader could finish smoking a cigarette.

I have called these very short stories “shots” as they are designed to hit you like a shot of spirits, & to be “downed in one.” Have as many as you fancy at a time.
