Flash Fiction : Light Years (9/100)

Sunday, 8 November 2009

... time. ...

Light Years
is a work of flash fiction. In fact it is the slowest piece of flash-fiction ever written. In real-time its one hundred words would take exactly 10,000 years to recount. Because of the limitations of a normal human life-span, it has been specially accelerated to the speed of one word per week. It will therefore take just under two years to tell from start to finish.

  1. Do you count these in your weekly word target? :P

  2. Absolutely! The 100 words were, of course, all written at the same time though ...


I'd love to know what you think.
