China Doll - Nailpolish Stories

I've mentioned before how much I love the idea of Nailpolish Stories, A Tiny and Colorful Literary Journal, where all the stories are exactly 25 words and are named for nailpolish colors.

Perky and innocent names, like "China Doll," can go in a very different direction in the hands of, well, someone like me. 


  1. Loved what you did with "China Doll". I don't as a rule wear *that* much nailpolish so I might need to research some colors...

  2. Simon - thank you! And remember, you don't always have to write what you know... :)

  3. I'm always so amazed how you can write something so powerful is so few words! Great story. :)

  4. Julie - thank you! I consider it a challenge and I love it. :)

    Emily - thank you! I appreciate you reading.

    Alex - I was going for chilling. Glad it worked!

    Annalisa - I'm glad you liked it!

  5. Stacy - thank you! I love when "vivid" comes across, especially in such short works.
