Topic: One-sentence Short Stories.

Purpose of this blog: Topics related to writing.

10-second review: I noted that the literary magazine Monkey Bicycle listed one-sentence short stories among the usual fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. I wondered, “What the heck is a one-sentence short story?”

Title: “Monkey Bicycle.” Reviewed by Melissa Hart. The Writer (October 2010), 47.

Example of a One-Sentence Short Story:
“Nagging Blind Spot”
Michael Noon

“Paul heard Julie’s quick intake of breath as he changed lanes and thought, here she goes again—.”

Comment: I need to try some one-sentence short stories. RayS.
