I am so excited to share with you a new, just for fun project I’m did for September 2019. If you were following me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you may have seen some of these very short stories I’ve been sharing. These are called microfictions or sudden fiction, stories of 280 characters or less. In short, stories that fit in a tweet.
Microfiction existed before Twitter and has often been defined as a story of less than 100 words. The go-to example of a microfiction is attributed to Hemmingway.
The story reads: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.“
It is only six words, but tells an entire story.
For September, I have challenged myself to write one daily microfiction. And when I have five, I’ll post them here! If you want to see them as they come out, check out my social media (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.)
So far, writing these fics has been a wonderful excercise for getting my creative juices moving in the morning, and I can even see some longer works growing from each of these little projects!
I made a video for the first one, which you can watch below. And you can read all five stories, with the graphics I made for each too.
If you have an idea for a future P&P microfiction story you’d like to see me write, drop it in the comments. Also, if any of these little ficlets makes you want to see a longer work, let me know! I might do it (or I might not. I go where the muse leads me, lol).
UPDATE: Every one of these stories are now on mugs! You can check them out here.
