Flash Fiction 1: Cumin Seeds And Stolen Dreams

Imagine a story spun in just six words, a universe laid bare in a single tweet, or a life-altering moment encapsulated in a few words. Flash fiction transforms these potentials into art, not through magic, but through the power of conciseness. A solitary sentence can ignite your imagination, unlock a kaleidoscope of emotions, and leave you pondering long after the fading of the final echo.
