The Pick of the Year

Just in time for our 18th anniversary, we created the Pick of the Year to honor, acknowledge and celebrate our contributors who did us a huge favor by submitting their works to us. We are sharing with the readers and potential contributors the reasons we loved and accepted a particular flash. Consider this Pick a typical flash representing each year.
Welcome to the Picks. We will add one year at the time, periodically, through 2018.

  1. For me, the beauty of flash fiction is that it demands you value every word, requires you recognize the universe can be contained within the mustard seed of a single well chosen word. “You, again” may be an innocuous, flirtatious, or even intimate greeting. Context matters. Writer’s intent, reader’s inference determines. “I guess I better go on and let you go” may be a trite, regional good-bye or, as the final words spoken by the love of your life, affirmation she has kept her oft spoken promise.
