Ben’s Franklins

Micro-fiction channeling moments of truth.

Walking the forests of the Shenandoah National Park last week, I thought about how I’d pass the days and weeks and months as a thru-hiker on the Appalachian Trail.

One exercise I settled on for keeping sane step after step was to craft a 100-word story each day out there.

Somehow the challenge stuck and I find myself drafting these nuggets even in sivilised settings.

Not all are ready for prime time, but a few are worth sharing.

As usual, title words are excluded from the count.

    • Vikram said, ‘I don’t get it. It’s kinda dumb. There’s no plot and its very repetitive.’ So that blows.

      I say, good thing it was only 100 words.

      Oh, also, all they wanted to do was count the words. So not sure who really missed the point here.
