Dear Marshall McLuhan: Sayang. Hindi mo na inabot ang Facebook at Twitter. Ito na ‘yun eh—ang mas malinaw na larawan ng iyong “the medium is the message” at “global village”. Kung buhay ka pa, siguro ang dami mong fans at followers. At marahil, makailang ulit na rin mareretweet ang “mmcluhan @theworld I told you so. #mycommtheories”.
Last week, Ben from nanoism.net e-mailed me to say that they’re publishing my nanofiction piece. Acc. to him, it was “disturbing and effective”. That really made my day! For those who are new to the term “nanofiction”, it’s simply a story written with just 140 characters, a limit popularized by Twitter. That’s why some also call it tweetfic.
Here’s my story:
The boil in her palm throbbed again before she could finish her lullaby. She kissed it gently but it cried.
What do you think lives inside that boil? :S
Thanks nanoism for giving me some space! A huge hug also goes out to Evenstarwen for introducing me to nanofiction!
