Small Flock: Everyday micro-stories

I recently experimented with a personal challenge to write a very, very short story every day and used Twitter as a way of constraining myself to 140 characters. The stories don’t connect with each other or build off a singular theme — I just wanted write every day and see what kind of imagery or emotion I could create in such a short space.

Sometimes the stories came from events during my day, sometimes from my childhood, and often from my imagination. Because they’re so short, I see each one as just a pointer to a more complex moment or feeling. Anyway, after 100 days of writing micro-stories on Twitter the experiment has run its course.

The project was called Small Flock and is archived on a website I made ( to display each story, one at a time.
