I’m Hontzlake and this — I’m sorry to say — is a story blog. Each story consists of 100 words, some of which are considered very carefully before selection. For convenience and matters of ritual, I use the counter inherent to Microsoft Word 2010. I publish twice a week on Wednesday and Friday.

Stories sharing the same tag are all generally connected. The lone exception is “everyone else,” which serves as a blanket category for one-offs. Finally, some of these short pieces of fiction are better than others. So, you know, good luck out there.
