30-08-2010 We Like Short Shorts (Stories)

Sudden fiction, micro fiction and flash fiction – these are the names given to the sub-genre of short fiction taking the

world by storm, thanks to social media sites like twitter encouraging and challenging us to tell a story in as few words as possible. Micro fiction conveys a sense of reality and immediacy, as it requires you to tell a story in less than 100 words. Ernest Hemingway once wrote a story in six words (For sale: baby shoes, never worn) and considered it his best work. Now anyone can express themselves in a flash with sites like 12Words or admire them here at my 50-word stories. Keep it brief, won’t you?
