Saturday Stories


Flash fiction is a form of story that uses limited words. Typically flash fiction is less than a thousand words, but often times includes much less. I entered this piece in a contest where the goal was to tell a complete story in 78 words or less.

There once was a pig named Harley who lived in a house with a family. He had his own bed and a basket full of toys. Harley thrilled the family with oinks and wagging his curly little tail.

Harley especially loved his human mom and wanted to be near her all the day long. So much so he one day ate the drywall to get into her office.

Now Harley has a new name and it’s Bacon.
