December 3: Tiny is Good

This blog post hit a few nerves when I published it a few weeks ago.

There’s this belief that a “proper book” should be massive.

But what if it doesn’t have to be?

Have a read, see what you think.

Writing Prompt

Now, today’s writing prompt is: what’s the tiniest version of a normal-sized thing you’ve ever seen?

I love tiny things.

I have on my desk The Complete Poems of DH Lawrence in miniature. It’s 20mm high and 14mm wide.


So, set your timer and write write write!
