#VSS – Very Short Story

Micropoetry | Haiku | Gogyohka | Tanka | Senryu | Twaiku | 1-6 lines | 3-10 words

You will sometimes find micro stories on twitter appended with the twitter hashtag #vss. The initials ‘VSS’ stands for Very Short Story. The use of this tag was started by @VeryShortStory. He says ‘I ask my Twitter followers to send me nouns. The nouns that inspire me, I use in a very short story that I send out on my @veryshortstory Twitter feed. Since it’s Twitter, the stories have to fit in 140 characters. This character space limitation can be challenging, but it forces me to use my creativity to find a way to convey the stories in a small space. My best trick is getting the readers to use their imagination to fill in the gaps’.

Microprose and fiction writers attach #vss to their very short stories. I’m not sure if this is part of a twitter hash tag game? If anyone has anymore info please contact me

Did an original #vss inspired by this image. @flochgregory originally drew this to accompany a different story, but I felt lot of emotion from this image. I felt it deserved something a little more.

Dawn and sunset blur together, Thread of light, Wisp of dark. And when night comes with blues and blacks, I light a match, To reignite the day. #vss #vsspoem pic.twitter.com/zINtYoLsoC
