And a bonus, 50 words Miniwords 2009--submission deadline is August 10th. Guidelines here: http://aniavesenny.blogspot.com/2009...ords-2009.html

I love micro (or is it nano?) fiction!

Anyone else shares my love love love? : : :

I guess you could almost think of it as a challenge to write a really, really good first paragraph?

Thank you for posting this! I think I'm going to give it a try. I've experimented with flash fiction before - this sounds even more fun and challenging!

Have fun!

For some reason, when I tried to write the 50 words ones, I wrote only 4 that I liked, and then I chose one to sub. But for the 25 word ones, I'm just having a blast--writing more and more of them.

I wonder if it is based on the definition. For Miniwords, I wanted to write a complete story. Like beginning, middle, end. Now I'm more focused on the "hint" factor. Which is really fun!

Hey! You're fast! I'm still writing them (for a nice collection ) but I can't decided yet which ones to submit!

I love them as long as there's no entry fee! ;-) Like this one.

Very cool, thank you! I just put in a couple of entries. I figure hey... it can't hurt! I'm actually rather proud of my entries.
