Flash Fiction : Light Years (52/100)

Sunday, 5 September 2010

... What ...

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. Peeking in from Donna's party. I must say it's strange to see a post with tomorrow's date ...

  2. Summer Ross,

    Yes, I realise this must be confusing. I think it's probably confusing for people who've followed it from the start!

  3. The Weavers,

    Ah, yes, I'm blogging from the future actually. Oh, wait, no - from the UK, that's it.

  4. Stopping by from the BBQ.

    This is such a great and interesting idea. I have such a bad memory, though, I'll have to look at the entire history each week! :)

    Look forward to seeing how it turns out!

  5. Witless,

    Can I call you that? I do know what you mean. It's kind of ... experimental.


I'd love to know what you think.
