Somewhere in Bucegi. Teambuilding for introverts. The first day begins with an individual walk that will take place at a distance of at least 300 meters from any other person. The meal follows, which is taken quietly. Then we go to group activities - we listen to music on headphones, watch movies on the phone, look in the distance and sing in our minds. In the evening we have improvisation on the theme: It's 'I think, so I exist', not 'I talk, so I exist'. We end with a personal development seminar: There are many words and I am nothing.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In April 2021, the group has 5.600 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, setting their texts within the limit of 500 symbols (in Romanian language, so in English the limit might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise with an almost daily changed topic. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
