    I am realizing that for the word Microfiction, you need two contradictory words, not just one. Miniscule alone implies diminutive, and yet, like homeopathic medicine, the more diminutive the essence, often the more the power. So, for Microfiction, we need two opposing words, such as gigantic in its smallness, a world in a marble. Try to think in those terms and see what you come up with. How much life can you pack into less than 500 words?
