Micro Fiction Flash In the Plan

So I'm actually doing this. I had an idea, and I've brought the thing to fruition. (Cue applause. Thank you. Thank you.) I'm writing micro stories. (500 words. As on the dot as possible.) And I'm mailing the stories to readers. At the moment, I'm trying to figure out how to best make this work. So stay tuned!

MicroFiction #1: The Blues — a story told from the POV of a pair of pants.

MicroFiction #2: Overlapping—a snapshot of office gossip w/a pair of pants at the center of the action.

MicroFiction #3: A Shimmer, A Glitter, Aglow—a Happily Ever After story about breaking free

If you'd rather I emailed you (instead of snail mailing) a story, let me know. I can work up a PDF. And if you'd like me to send you a piece, and then let you decide for yourself how much it is worth to you, I'm fine with that as an option, too. (Hit me with a note at msalisontyler at yahoo dot com.)

Why am I doing this?

In a strange way, this is how I started. I used to write short fiction for my friends—mumble, mumble decades ago. One-page stories that I would mail to them, or tuck in their pockets, slip under their doors. And I'm doing my best to not only think outside the box, but to destroy the box. Shred it. Set it aflame.

Next up? Why, yes, I'll be taking your suggestions. And for fun, I'm slipping in a crocheted ring with every story.
