Ok, I've finished the first draft of "Wraped Up (flash fiction) and I'm going to go ahead and post it. It's my first real attempt at horror/weird fiction, and so far feedback is mostly positive (except one person wanted more sex, geesh).  Under 1000 words, it's a quick read and is hopefully...

The 53-word site may be interesting to writers who find it challenging and informative to work with a limited palette. A 53-word story is almost impossible, but it puts you in a show-don't-tell vise that forces you to find the bare bones of a story. In truth, I like to read good telling when...

   At Fifth and Market       An old woman sits at a window. A street runs below her.  It once shuttled fattened taxis past her building. Now buses, on natural fuel, run silent as fog.     Men, one day, stopped wearing hats. Young people dressed...
