Subjective Interpretation in Flash Fiction


This analysis paper presents two of the author's flash fiction stories. He encourages readers to make sense of the narratives in their own way. The paper argues that revealing too much of the story would deprive the reader of the stimulation which was supposed to draw them toward closure. The author observes that the vast majority of recent flash stories do not have the above-mentioned ironic twist but hopes that this paper will proliferate the endangered mystique. The author terms the mistake of telling the reader too much as 'the spoiler'. The term is often used in the movie industry to mean a piece of information that-too early on-reveals important plot details, twists, or surprises about a movie. It is intended that this paper remains short and easy to understand so that readers can grasp flash fiction and be interested in stories of that nature.
