on word counts


I have a story of 653 words. It does not need any more or any less words. It is too long by 53 words for a short short magazine and 97 words too short to be considered a "short short" for Narrative Magazine's first-person contest, which costs too much money anyway. I am a social outcast. Also, what a bunch of bean counters.

I will read about anything with boobs. I assume I share this in common with every reader and editor in the world.
