I know you all love ficly, but don’t you ever wish you could break its barriers? 2048 characters! 4096 characters! Well, get over it, you can, elsewhere. This challenge is about remaining within those confines, and yet squeezing as much meaning and plot into that kilobyte as you can.

Write a story using Reader’s Digest style shorthand, or something like it. No limits on what you write about, but the story should be over 1000 characters. Winner will based upon who can squeeze the most implied characters into their story, giving their story the greatest spiritual length, and yet also be comprehensible.

Contest ends at the end of the month.
