About

Fictionables

While I was at UCD, I began writing a series of 100-word stories as part of my master's thesis. In spring 2012, one of my short stories, "Big Dog," was read aloud at Stories on Stage in Sacramento. I wanted to bring some sample of my work along with me that readers and writers could take home with them - some small, interactive implement that people could use to generate their own work while interpreting my own. Thus the 100-word-story postcard was born: a slice of storytelling, paired with an evocative illustration, presented such that readers and writers alike could respond on the other side, or share with friends while mailing around the world. My boyfriend and partner in crime, Ryan Alpers, helped me design the templates and perfect the images.

This project is in part an exploration of flash fiction (how short can a story be and still have an impact?), and an experiment on interactive storytelling (how far can we get these stories to go? what geography can they explore?).

I hope that readers and writers alike can enjoy these postcards and help us spread the word - in every possible sense.
