Stream of Consciousness

By Bruce Levine

Brian Denby opened his computer and started writing. He didn’t know why he was writing or what words were actually ending up on the page. His fingers kept moving across the keyboard and the words kept filling up the page. He knew he had to be careful and not cross the 100-word threshold or his story wouldn’t be published. After about 10 minutes he looked at the word count and saw that there were 101 words. Rather than bothering to read the content of the story he looked for a single word to cut.

Cut.

100 words.

Submit.


Bruce Levine writes, he says, “because he simply wants to share with his readers.”
