I love a good challenge so I tend to go searching for sites that give me rules or prompts from which to write a piece. Paragraph Planet requires a piece of 75 words – no more, no less.
“Thrift Shop” was written after I discovered Paragraph Planet in a list of micro-fiction sites provided by Cameron Filas to the Facebook Call for Submissions group.
I submitted the piece to Paragraph Planet and last night received word that it would be published today. You can view the piece at http://www.paragraphplanet.com. Note that it will be sent to the archives tomorrow so grab it while it’s hot.
