Shotgun Honey

That's the name of the nifty short-fiction blog I recently began following. Each story, all of them in the crime genre, has a 700-word maximum, which forces writers to relate things as quickly as possible but hopefully without violating (much) the 'show don't tell' dictum of storytelling. It's great exercise for a writer and also leads to fun experiments and methods which are evident as you read the entries. They're also good for when you don't have time to read longer work, or if Twitter has beaten your attention span into a coma.
