Two first of those are the results of my Day 8 with “30 Days of Inspiration” (a free eBook I thoroughly recommend you to download here), which proposes to write a love story and a ghost story in less than 20 words. All of the following pieces present sheer experiments with form and meaning in no more than the said number of words. I leave the the outcomes to your judgment.
1: A Million of “Should Have”
Four steps forward.
A polite nod.
2: Regret Comes After
CHLOE COOPER-WEBB JAKE COOPER MIRANDA COOPER
1976-2007 1977-2008 1951-2009
NEVER FORGET CRIME UNREPAID BRINGS NO REST
In stupor, we grays gape at a puce invading the blue—we must be colourblind.
4: The Big Book of History
Again, beginning seizes end, again.
5: Ode to Fear
Breathe in; clench your fists; reminisce every tear, fail, and loss. Now shut up and suffocate.
6: The Greater Good
