Quick and Dirty

Contest? Sounds tough. Maybe. But if you like to write in few words like me, this one is appealing.

“Hint Fiction (n): a story of 25 words or fewer that suggests a larger, more complex story.

For this contest, Gotham welcomes the expertise of Robert Swartwood, editor of Hint Fiction: An  Anthology of Stories of 25 Words or Fewer (to be published in November by W.W. Norton). Mr. Swartwood will select the winner from the finalists in this competition.”

And there are some actual prizes, including money.

Here’s a bad example:

And Then There was One

Three, four and five followed, with two remaining in a dusty heap on the floor until midnight.

Here are some good ones.
