101 Words

My micro-fiction “Potato Eyes” is featured in 101 Words this week.

I like challenging myself with writing exercises using a tight word count. This story grew out of a flash fiction workshop I taught at last year’s Goat Hill Workshop-Palooza event. The first sentence had been haunting me for a while, and I knew I had to write a story around it. I chose second person plural narration because I wanted to convey the sense of a whole community living among these kidnapped girls, seeing them and yet not seeing them.
