A few months back, I got invited by a friend of mine, who helped me edit Terran Psychosis to do a special project. At the time it was more of an idea and to generate who was interested. The basic idea was to write a short story in 540 words (or less). When I say story, as was stipulated in the rules, is that it had to have a clear beginning, middle, and end.
Me, I am a novelist. Tell me to give you a full story, I’ll request 54,000 words. How do I cram that into 540 words? Then again, I managed to tell a whole story with Terran Psychosis, and that was 10,000 words, and Scrapping By, which was 8,000 words. Also, back in April, I tried my hand at a few Drabbles, which is just 100 word stories.
So why not try it?
