Flash Fiction : Light Years (23/100)

Sunday, 14 February 2010

... alone ...

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. Hi

    That word is kind of apt for today isn't it really??

    That and chocolate.


    Take care

  2. Yes. I tried but wasn't able to get chocolate into the story I'm afraid ...


I'd love to know what you think.
