Lately I've been fascinated by micro fiction. Perhaps it's because we are nearing the end of the semester and I had too much to read, therefore, I appreciated when one of my professors gave us micro fictions to read. Pif magazine has a great post about the essentials of micro-fiction. It is a new way of reading and writing wait for an image to form, before reading the next word.
It has even been brought to my attention that micro-fiction is taking place through tweeter as well. How crazy it is to get a story done within 140 words. Crazy, but not impossible.
I found this type of writing refreshing. Having every day a new microfiction assignment helps improve ones creativity as well as helps one to cultivate the discipline of writing.
