This week I discovered Thaumatrope, a new short fiction magazine. Emphasis on short. It runs on Twitter, so each story can be no longer than 140 characters. Impossible to write a story that short, I thought. Then I wrote one. And another. And another. These things are seriously addictive!
The funny thing is, I normally have a problem with stories going too long. It's not uncommon for me to finish a first draft around ten thousand words and have to cut it back to six or less. It's kind of like I've gone from writing orchestral scores to playing in The Ramones.
If you're on Twitter, follow the mag here. It's not just fiction - they've got interviews and game reviews too. Promise nothing there is gonna take you too long to read.
