How Short is Too Short?
When the writing gets tough, the writer changes things up with a writing challenge: 240-character short stories! (Like a tweet!)
Sara massaged her painfully stubbed toe. That’d teach her to leave dead bodies lying around in the kitchen. After all, just because you kill demons and save the world, doesn’t mean you get to give up on tidiness.

Justin drinks Earl Gray tea. He says it reminds him of a college trip to Ireland where he wandered the hills, read Ulysses and felt erudite. But I know it reminds him of Captain Picard from Star Trek. He’s just too embarrassed to admit it.
Got a super-short story of your own? I’d love to read it. Post it in the comments below!
