Dear Writing Students,

You might not hear from me for a couple of weeks, as my husband is going in for hip replacement surgery. We’ll drive to Westlock next Sunday and be back sometime the following week. We’re hoping for a speedy recovery!

To keep you busy, I’m leaving you with some inspiration for short short stories of 100 – 200 words –

A man ran down the alley.

Flowers struggled to survive.

They looked up at the sky in terror.

The key to writing really short stories is to keep things simple, limit the number of characters, reign in impulses to include more than the most essential description and trust your subconscious to bring the piece to a conclusion.

Have fun!
