In experimenting with various styles of writing and reading more of other writers’ work, I’m learning my strengths and weaknesses. Though I’m unofficially announcing at this moment I’m working on a novel, short fiction and poetry are what I’m best at. I like for my words to pack a punch, so I attempt to create a long message in as few words as possible. I dabble in six word stories and I’m always up for a good haiku. Here’s my first attempt at five sentence fiction:
Not So Obvious
A blind person could see it! The way she smiled when she read his messages; her eyes lit up every time she touched something he touched. She felt every word he spoke. The way they met was kismet. If only his eyes lit up, too.
