Very Short Stories

So, I was just turned on to this guy on twitter @veryshortstory and it’s a fascinating new development for our short attention span world. Apparently it’s an example of a brand new form of writing called flash fiction. Flash fiction is a form of writing akin to brainstorming. Writers test out new material writing very short stories of just a paragraph or a sentence. This guy has gone to the extreme of writing short stories that fit into a tweet! That’s a story of 160 characters or less!!! And the crazy part is they’re good! It’s sort of haiku meets limerick meets short story. Seems like fun… I want to give it a try:

Suddenly the bed felt warmer, like a warm embrace as I noticed the pressure in my bladder was now gone.

Let’s hear your flash fiction!

Much love, peace out
