This story or poem is for logged in supporters only! Here is a short excerpt to whet your appetite:

"Today for reading, we are going to learn about one-tick literature," Teacher Rreffein announced as she wrote the term on the slateboard. "The name refers to something short enough to write -- or even read -- in the span of one tick. Now, one-tick literature can be either fiction or poetry. There are various kinds. We'll start with a simple example of each."

Bai leaned over his desk, busily writing down what the teacher said. His twin brother Rai stared at the teacher, because he couldn't see the slateboard. He just concentrated on memorizing everything he heard. His study-servant Methlen still helped him by taking notes, but Rai needed them less and less. He liked being able to rely on himself rather than someone else.

Author's Notes

This story came out of the February 26, 2011 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from Wyld_dandelyon. It can be sponsored for $10.25 (or 10 Torn world credits).
