In October 2017 I came across an internet blog challenge for a story written in two sentences. I wrote a story. Liking the format, I did another one. Another one. And another.
Quite a few stories later, I had enough for a book. Not only did I have stories, but I had written a short poem and created a brush and India ink illustration for each one as well.
The result was Minuscule, published in 2018. I’m now going to show you the book illustrations as an ongoing feature on this blog, once a week. I’ll link back to the story (they have been published one by one on my poetry blog).
If you want to hold the entire book in your hand, the print version is available on Amazon.
“Capture” is the title of the story. Look here to read it.
Great ambiguity in that story. (K)
Thank you, I like this one myself for that reason. There is more than one story in these words, and for me that is a mark of the kind of thing I like to read and I hope to write.
I agree. I like writing to make me think.
The illustration is charming. I suspect Cleo in the story has a marvellously charming facade because that is the hook for the unsuspecting fish.
I like this story for the many ways it could go and that each reader can devise a new one, and I do think Cleo has a special way about her than makes this thing go!
