The micro-stories challenge has caught on and I have collected your submissions into groups as follows…

Up to 50 words; 50 words exactly; 53 words (this is a thing); up to 100 words; 100 words exactly; up to 200 words. Word count does not include the title. These are the various word counts of micro-stories that are normally the competition criteria.
