Previous exercises here:

Day Two: Get Concrete
Day Three: The A-to-B Journey
Day Four: A New Draft
Day Five: Tighten Your Sentences
Day Six: Two New Drafts and a Revision

Look at all you've written this week. Choose your favorite piece. Rewrite it, doing whatever you think will improve it. Spend twenty minutes on it. Or more. As much time as it takes to make it as good as you can.

Now consider submitting it to one of these publications: 

Microfiction Monday Magazine —up to 100 words
100 Word Story —up to 100 words
The Offing — Microfiction category: up to 560 characters (not words!)

Flash Magazine — up to 360 words

If you're one of my Yale students, please bring your drafts to New Haven. I'll let you know which day to bring them to class. I can't wait to see them!
