Crafting Very Short Fiction

A good friend of mine, Tamar Levi, interviewed me about writing short fiction. When we had this discussion a 700 word short story of mine had just won a short fiction competition. Then, last week a ten word story I wrote won another contest for very very short fiction. I’m slowly whittling my stories down to ever shorter and more brittle sentences.

My new goal is to write a perfect story with just one word, and then to recite that story all over town, while people throw flowers and money at me.

Until then you should read Tamar’s blog post.

You may still throw flowers and money at me.

I’m around.
