I’ve added a new section to the site for microfiction. Also known as very short stories (posted to my Twitter feed as #vss or sometimes #storystarters) or hint fiction, these are usually meant to suggest a story to the reader rather than actually tell one. It’s an interactive experience where the reader can’t help filling in the details, whether they realize it or not, creating something different in each person’s mind. They’re inspired by Hemingway’s most famous six-word gem: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Some are jokes of sorts, and most are disturbing.
