Tripp Stelnicki’s 100 word microfiction, “Press the Button”, will appear in the second issue of The Centifictionist (Vol. 1, Issue 2, Fall/Winter 2020). Tripp graciously answered a few brief questions for us. Read the interview below.
1. What inspired the story “Press the Button”?
Having a few minutes and wanting to get it done. If there was ever a year
or a moment where you’ve got to be able to set little achievable goals and
meet them, it’s this one. I couldn’t say where it came from.
2. What inspires you and your writing?
Only trying to write something true.
3. What keeps you going when experiencing times of misery and despair?
A lot of it is outside your control. One foot in front of the other.
4. What advice do you have for microfiction writers?
There’s a lot to explore in small spaces.
