Skinny Fiction

Welcome to Skinny Fiction where you can read, write and host Skinny Fiction stories. I'm talking really skinny like 10, 25, 50 and 100 words or less. The less the better. Here's a great example:

For sale: baby shoes, never worn. 
by Ernest Hemingway

Here's another by a complete unknown writer, but I bet we'll be hearing a lot more from her in the future:

Stalked
Footsteps. Alone. Full moon.
by Amelia


Oooooh. I've got goosebumps. Isn't that haunting? And thought provoking too in only 4 words! Imagine what she could do with a novel? I'm really excited about Amelia. I hope she keeps writing ...

Want a quick lesson on how to write Skinny Fiction? Try Jacqui Winn's eye opening article. Or watch this great video on Rochelle's page. 

In a nutshell, a story has a beginning a middle and an end. They usually have a character and conflict, as the above two stories do. A statement is not a story. A joke is not a story. A biography or a memoir is not fiction. Give it a go. If you're already a writer, then show others how it's done. If you want to be a writer, embrace the pressure of exposure and enter a your story. That's what writers do.
