A Long List of Short Fiction Publishers

Writers know that size matters.

When searching for places to submit shorter works, word count is key. This website lists publications that accept prose of 3,000 words or less. It is quite a lengthy collection of publications and allows you to search by word limit.

Bob and Beastman’s Honeymoon – A Flash Fiction Story in Second Person Present

“Tagging along on the honeymoon of your two best friends makes you feel a little like the squeaky extra wheel on your nephew’s tricycle. Your two best friends in the whole world are a sentient monkey named Bob and a beastman cleverly named Beastman.”

This is my experiment with writing a story in second person, present tense. It was pretty fun. It’s also pretty short. Less than 1,500 words. You could probably read it in the time that it takes to brew a cup of coffee.

If you’ve ever wanted to read about the adventures of a sentient monkey named Bob and a Beastman, check it out:
