This post is a clarification of some of the earlier comments I made about fast fiction. I want to make it clear that the “fast” in fast fiction doesn’t pertain to the writing of it. The point of it is to enable fast reading for time-constrained readers. The process of writing fast fiction is actually slower than it is for conventional fiction, because the writer can’t ramble on and the editing process is far more ruthless. Fast fiction is based on the premise that reading should be more like it was when we were children. It should be more about eating ice-cream than eating your vegetables. Fast fiction isn’t intended as a replacement for conventional styles of fiction, but rather as an addition that will provide another alternative to readers.
