Thanks for the smile. I needed it this morning.
Thanks! I was actually thinking about a different piece when this came to my brain. =)
This is so good…micro fiction sounds intriguing!
Thanks! There is one account I follow on Twitter – @ASmallFiction – who posts stories like these.
I love those small stories on Twitter – it’s harder than one thinks to craft such a zinger in so few words. I just recalled Hemingway’s: “For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.” Cuts like a knife. Yours, here – hits us right where we are and who we are, with humor. Too fun!
Thanks! And yes, that Hemingway story hits hard.
I may experiment a little more with the form – who knows? This one, though, wrote itself when it hit me. :))
Those are the best, the ones that write themselves. Inspiration taking over the pen …or the keyboard …
