A lifelong book lover, C. Chancellor has been writing original fiction since high school. Fiction you can read in a flash Flash fiction is a relatively recent form of creative writing, and it's perfect for our low attention span society. It can be written and read in minutes or seconds -- though ideally it relates a story that's more than the sum of its carefully selected words.
It was fun composing them: Alun John Gentile 19 months ago from Connecticut I like your 50 word mini stories. Some of them were very funny. I should explain that this is not my site.
I write on it but I do not own it. This collection of mini-stories is currently on 'Letterpile'. But Letterpile is just a creative writing subdivision of 'HubPages' - a content site where anyone who wishes to write, can contribute articles in English on any subject they like.
It is a community of writers. I for example contribute articles on travel, astronomy, politics and many other subjects besides these short stories. It's an easy way of writing a web page without having to create a website of your own.
So whilst there unfortunately isn't a facility to post stories on this page of mine, you could easily write a page all of your own on HubPages, and post all your students' stories there. The link below will take you to a page where HubPages is explained, and there is an opportunity to sign up.
It's absolutely free, and very easy to use, and you can create just one page or as many pages as you want. I hope that helps, and if you decide to join, I look forward to welcoming you as a fellow member to HubPages, and I'll give you any support I can!
Alun Felipe 23 months ago Hi Alun, Thanks for your reply and sorry for the unusual writing about writing the other day.
It was a fun exercise. I am a teacher of English in Peru, and in one of the lessons we were dealing with short stories and the challenge for the students in class was to come up with a fifty-word story.
They have come up with their stories and we were wondering if we could post the stories on this page. If you give us the green light, we would appreciate it.
Your comment seemed a trifle unusual, so I decided to add up the words and, yes, there are of course fifty. So well done for posting both a comment on creative writing, and an additional contribution to the fifty word short story idea.
So incidentally, is this reply! Felipe 24 months ago Writing, typing, pushing keys with intensity, things you do when you need to release your repressed emotions and thoughts. Is there anything you won't confess? Writing can be the medium. Once you've started, you will see how relieved you are and how much you have to confess.
Raeee Aliens does not have to be ugly This was one of my very first hubs 4 years ago, and it's really nice to know that people are still finding it and reading it. It was one that I particularly enjoyed writing. Not an easy thing to do and make them interesting. You did it though. I enjoyed them all particularly "Strangers Home and Abroad".
Always nice to hear which stories are peoples' favourites. Alun Essie 3 years ago from Southern California This will be useful! Glad I found your profile I'm not keen on Michael Jackson, but like some of Elvis's work, and love the Beatles - hence the decision to write them into a 50 word essay!
I guess I'm old. I also still love Elvis and Michael Jackson. Glad you like the page, Nithya, and 'Love'. Nithya Venkat 4 years ago from Dubai Enjoyed reading your hub, all are great stories but I like the one called Love. Great hub, voted up awesome, interesting and useful.
