For the next six weeks, I’ll be overwhelmed by career-related stuff. I have detailed reviews and “settings” articles I’m eager to write, but I’m going to stick to shorter posts until things slow down. This seems like an obvious time for a couple of posts about microfiction (100 words or less) and flash fiction (1,000 words or less).
I wrote a few microfiction stories recently, and I’m planning to submit them to a contest or blog, hoping to draw a few new readers to this site. I decided my first target would be 101 fiction, but unfortunately their deadline just passed, and it will be October before submissions open again. I will probably wait, but I’m open to other suggestions.
In the meantime, I went through the 101 fiction site, choosing my three favorite stories in both the science fiction and fantasy categories. Check them out, they’re only 100 words each.
