Blink and you miss it. Those of you with your eyes closed will have let week 50 of Friday Flash pass you by on Friday.
Short, snappy and over by the weekend, it is the latest way to tell stories - and it's spreading all over the world via Twitter.
Friday Flash (fridayflash.org) is a web-based project set up by one writer to spread short stories - getting more people to write and to read them.
