Ten Word Tales

An experimental collection of ultra-short fiction - a story told in just ten words.

The idea is there should be a beginning, middle and end to the tale, explicit or strongly implied.  Ideally, the tale should make the reader work a little, for example, think about what happened or what will happen or why or what the story is alluding to etc.

I might open this up to a competition and/or ask for other Ten Word Tales from the great and the good in fiction - let's see how it goes.  (Please feel free to put any comments in the "Contact" section.)
