Since Friday Flash Fiction began in September 2013, 100-word stories have remained its 'beating heart'.
Normally, 100-word stories are scheduled for 07.00 BST (GMT in the winter) on the following Friday. However, where a large number of stories (more than 25) are due to be published on the same day, we publish a second batch around 10.30am. Recently, we've welcomed a lot of newcomers and found that even two batches doesn't cover them all. Wherever that happens, we'll simply be publishing 'as and when' during the course of the day.
Each week we pick a story or (occasionally) a poem as 'Editor's Choice'. It's a personal favourite, no more. Do you agree?
