I'm writing a crit and as I do I'm realizing that I don't know what the standards are for "flash" fiction--maybe I have an incorrect idea of what it is. I THOUGHT it was written in one setting, like in a stream of consciouness. If so, that it wouldn't be fair to crit it. Nobody writes perfectly the first time.

But then I read this online explanation and I think I'm supposed to use the same standards as with regular fiction.

Y'all please clarify.
