So I came across this post on the create space blog, which basically invites you to write a micro story.
A micro story is a one sentence story. The concept reminds me of the six word story, which I have attempted a couple of times. I was intrigued enough to try the micro story. Heck, I'll try any kind of writing!
My first couple of attempts, my micro story came out as compelling sentences rather than a tale. I had to remind myself that I was really writing a very very very very short story.
So here is my micro story:
She woke to the cries of seagulls but he lay beside her snoring; oblivious to her torment, undisturbed by the sound of her tears, dead to the metal scraping and the click, and then, just dead.
Hopefully I'll improve!
