  1. I’ve only started reading ( I’m locked in the Boringness Hole…some call it work) just to say I already really enjoyed the few brief, little gems I just read! Will print the pages and bound them together for my own safe keeping and when I have little children I will read it to them!

    Thank you very much for sharing , looking forward to read the rest! 😀

  2. Thank you so much for the free download!
    There’s something addictive and inspiring about your 50 word stories. Having found them, I am now hooked, and I love building narratives around them.
    Have a lovely day 🙂 🙂 🙂

  3. I enjoyed reading your 50 word stories and I have started writing 50 words of my own. Thank you for the amazing inspiration I’ve receieved just reading your blogs.
    I must say, yours is one of my top favorite blogs. Hats off to you, even though I don’t wear any.

  4. Amazing work! I would not have thought you could put such an image in your head with just 50 words … I am so impressed … Thank you so much foe sharing your work like that .. I look forward to reading more of your posts, too! 🙂

  5. What a gift!

    I have just finished reading your 50 Tales … and have it on my Iphone as well so that I can refer to it again and again even if I’m not at home. I simply adore the unadorned beauty of these stories. They say “a picture is worth a thousand words”, and in this case, each of your short short stories is worth a thousand words or more. I only wish there was a way to get the book in a suitably nice binding so that I can enjoy it a way you can’t by reading on a computer. You know, sort of in the way that writing by hand writing is different from writing with a typewriter … reading a book you can touch, and hold, an look at on the table is different from reading on an electronic screen.

    I look forward to reading more of what you have to say.

  7. Downloaded it and enjoyed it thoroughly. Wonderful read, wrote a post on it..This was my first introduction to 50 word tales.

  8. Vincent, I love your words, having your stories and lovely images in my handbag – to draw upon when I’m about to drift off to sleep, taking a coffee break, alone at my desk, or percolating my own ideas about writing and story dreaming – is, for me a secret little treasure – and I thank you for that 🙂

    You are very gifted and I am keen to follow you on your sojourn, learn from you and share you with others.

    I’m completely new to blogging and slightly daunted at the prospect of putting myself out there … lots to learn, lovely people to connect with,

    Now and then – I’d like you to hold my hand …

    Thank you for your blog x

  9. What an amazing book. Your snapshots of moments create a wealth of emotions, images and questions. Even in the restricted frame of 50 words I engaged in the stories and conected with the characters. Each Story left me wanting more. What a gift and talent you have!

  10. Thank you very much for this! It is a joy to read your stories! You are truly talented and very inspiring. Keep up the fine work. You keep on writing; we keep on reading. 🙂

      1. I think I liked the funny ones the most. For example, #3 made me laugh. I thought #17 and #31 were funny too… I liked #6 and 16 a lot also because they were heartwarming.

  11. I found your website and I admire your succinct turn of phrase – the 10 tips for writers piece has me wanting to read and reread – almost to stage that I do better than have a paraphrased recall of the 10 points. You nailed one concept for me – that of story – I have many stories still to write – as there are species in botany – this greenery is part of our culture – plants, fungi, liverworts, lichens growing on various trees that one can go for a walk to and see – I never really understood what was a story – and I will read more with interest. As to me, I gave up English at 14 in school, did well at Maths, Physics and Applied Maths, but never pursued it at college – There I read Pharmacy and did botany as a hobby – I have worked as a botanist – but have had my scientific vision stymied by my personality clash with my boss – and am now reengaging with writing – defining myself as a writer 3 years ago was the best move I made – the lichenfoxie blog shows what I get exercised about – I am enthusiastic about latin as a botanical language aide for describing plants their shape and form, as with watercolour painting as a calmer way of illustrating (which I have to work hard to allow myself to start every so often) and close up photography (40mm field of view) for species recognition of parts of various plants – I like your style – elegant – hat wearing 9 out of 10, formal costume for a courtier of the Roumanian court – and I would like you to read one of my longer poems – here is the link https://lichenfoxie.wordpress.com/2014/10/30/caribbean-literary-salon-blog-v/ – there is a rhythm to writing – and that is what your prose captures ! I hope you like – see the diversity !
