The best things come in small parcels.

The greatest thinkers use the fewest words.

Condensing a story into 100 words is the task set before you. You have the capacity for characterisation and generation of mood, but choose your words wisely!

The 100 Word Story Contest is designed to stretch your imagination and indulge your vocabulary. How evocative can you be? How can you awaken the senses?

SteemTrail and @ebryans are excited to present this engaging initiative. On a weekly basis there will be a new theme about which to write your 100 word (or less) stories – poems are more than acceptable, as are multiple entries.

Thank you @meesterboom, much appreciated. There are some fantastic little stories from week two - I have sent them far and wide across the internet. I have found short story groups in Facebook and Twitter ... we are gathering momentum. Your help in getting this up and running is very much appreciated and valued. Thank you.
Writing Trail has another contest which I am announcing in an hour or two. I hope you enjoy that one too!


I will be sure to keep an eye out for it!
