Flash Fiction : Light Years (85/100)

Sunday, 24 April 2011

... eight ...

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. This is the coolest idea I have ever heard, and how DARE you think of it before me? Seriously, thumbs up, man. This is one of those rare examples of an artist using the internet as a canvas instead of just a frame. Brilliant.

  2. Joe,

    Heh. Actually I used my time machine to steal the idea from you in the future. Sorry about that.


I'd love to know what you think.
