Flash Fiction : Light Years (38/100)

Sunday, 30 May 2010

... novae, ...

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. When this is completed, will you put it all together for those of us whose short-term memories can't manage to keep it all together across the many post?

  2. fairyhedgehog,

    I will! In fact, I think I'll start posting some story-so-fars as it is a bit hard to follow, I now realise!


I'd love to know what you think.
