Piersic himself posts a text on the topic, about his Imagination. I comment on the text with constructive intentions, as I usually do with all my colleagues, although I am not always well understood, I tell him: the topic is about Piersic, write about him. Answer: I am Florin Piersic. I say: Oh, now we do what we want if we're stars. He says: No, I really am myself. Aha, so we also use motivational quotes. It's not a quote sir, it's just how I expressed myself. Congratulations, now poetry. What's on your mind, I don't understand? But what about yours?

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 October 2022, the group has 9,400 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)
