short stories or microstories?

Reply Thu 16 Jul, 2009 01:05 pm
Hi everybody, how are you doing?

My friend and I having a bit of difficulty finding the name of a story that is

composed from say only sixty words. Only few lines two or three lines story.

I'm not sure if that short story or microstory because those should be more

than a 1000 words.

So what do we call that kind of very very short stories?

Thanks for any idea.

In my studies I haven't encountered a formal name for them. "Short short" and "flash fiction" are popular terms, though.

Hi Gargamel,

But I still wonder if there is any shorter story!
