  1. Microfiction is such a challenge! You held the picture for 24 hours and, in a few words, captured exactly what I was feeling about it. Please do keep coming back!

  5. Thanks Stafford.

    The thing about micro-fiction is that it also takes a certain kind of audience to imagine the entire story around those few words.. unlike an image which immediately conveys something to most.

  11. Thanks for dropping in Jessica. This story is about something that is totally new in another culture..outside our experience.. like that boy who lives in a black and white world, and comes across 'color' - which is outside his previous experience.

  12. What an amazing story! Yes it does take a certain kind of readership, imaginative and creative enough to build up a crescendo ... this is merely a launching pad. An absolute gem.
