"The jewel of the sudden (flash) story is the gap. A lot of words are missing, not because they are extraneous, but because their absence speaks the unspeakable. The writer of the sudden story has to weigh the efficacy of each word. Knowing what to include - often the details - and knowing what not to include - often everything but the details - that's not a gift. It's a practice that involves trusting the written word more than yourself."
