Micro-fiction… recently intrigued by a book of stories with less than 100 words, mini plots, where the reader can use their imagination to fill in-between the lines; I wanted to share my own attempt at this method of writing that I found interesting. When I tighten up a story, I refer to it as “removing the garbage”. Writing 100 words or less in creating fiction… almost impossible, but I was not going to stop. I wrote a story about 600 words then begin to cut it down to 100 words; the processes seem unattainable. I may have gone too far in my attempt as this mini-sag left but 57 words.
A silhouette in the darkness, once believing true love existed. Time had stood still, the body still covered in the sense of a sweet presence. The dread of parting hanging heavily in the air, breathing brought with it invisible matter to wall up a painful heart. A clandestine life finally over, leaving only one heartbroken.
“Life is short, live it. Love is rare, grab it. Anger is bad, dump it. Fear is awful, face it. Memories are sweet, cherish it.”
