Fifty Words on Fifty Def­i­n­i­tions of Flash

(def­i­n­i­tions from Dictionary.com)

      5.   super­fi­cial, mere­tri­cious, or vul­gar showi­ness; osten­ta­tious dis­play.       

Every flash risks super­fi­cial­i­ty, a dis­play of how lit­tle it takes to be a writer, how easy it is to get some­thing down. Prompts go up, hours lat­er flash after flash on dis­play. If they are bril­liant, they are as new­ly mint­ed coins, at least as shiny, worth some­times more.
