Brilliant. I. You understand. Head to toe. Backwards read. Order of words in style. Very sly. No modesty here. Perfect is the text. Exactly 500 characters. Rules. Group. Real Fiction. It's working. Countdown. No commas. No phrases. Only and only sentences. Creative but a little repetitive. Word by word. Letter by letter by letter. Few adverbs. Few adjectives. I write and inspiration comes. Reading is good. Wonder and read. The proof is here. Everyone knows already. It is clear now. I. Genius.

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 July 2022, the group has 8,750 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes almost daily. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
