I opened my inbox this morning and there was one mail which I know will cheer me up the rest of the day no matter how bad things go.
Have you ever heard of twitter fiction? Yes, stories that do not exceed 140 words. You might be thinking how you can possibly fit a story under 140 words, but believe me, it's possible.
Nanoism.net is a website for twitter fiction. People submit their stories and the guys who run the show publish the stories they like. And of course I too submitted a story, way back in June.
Nanoism is an online publication for twitter-fiction: stories of up to 140 characters. Shorter then traditional flash fiction, it’s both a challenge to write and quick as a blink to read. Call it nanofiction, microfiction, twiction, twisters, or tweetfic—it doesn’t matter: It’s the perfect art form for the bleeding edge of the internet revolution.
So dear friends, I received an email this morning saying my story is going to be published on October 1. Isn't that great? I know it's only 140 words and not a book deal or a movie deal, but still, somebody out there likes it and wants to publish it for the whole world to see.
I know I should have waited until October 1 before writing this post but I am overexcited and I know I cannot sit still for eleven more days without sharing this with you.
