The Definitive Flash: 50 Shades of Flash, Day 21

Fifty Words on Fifty Def­i­n­i­tions of Flash

(def­i­n­i­tions from Dictionary.com)


      21. to speak or behave with sud­den anger, out­rage, or the like
(often fol. by out): to flash out at a stu­pid remark.

That sud­den angry punch or plate thrown against a wall often feels
out-of-place with­in the con­fines of flash. Of course, any­one can make any­thing
work in a flash fic­tion piece. But flash some­times works best to cap­ture the
unre­al­ized sud­den out­burst, focus­ing instead on some­thing more sub­tle.
