About this blog:

Thank you for visiting Postcard Fiction, a spot for literary exploration in fifty words or less.  For more of an explanation about the genre of postcard fiction, I’ve done my best to describe it here.

I am a writer from Toronto who loves for very short fiction.  This blog is my chance to experiment.  Please comment or critique.  I am always striving to improve my writing.  Or if so inspired, leave me your own story.

Please drop by my website, Janet Koops: I writeHere my blogging covers a broader spectrum of topics and is a chance to get to know me better. I can also be found at Koopcakes, a place for me to post photos of, you guessed it, cakes.

    • Hey thank you so much and congratulations on winning it.

  1. I really like the idea of very short fiction, especially postcard sized but whenever I’ve tried it just hasn’t worked so I look forward to learning from you!

  2. Wow, what a fabulous idea. I love this! We are now following and I’m looking forward to nosying around the site.

    • Thanks for coming by, I really enjoyed my visit to your site. I think I might try the 100 word challenge.

    Have a great day!


    P.S. This is kind of like ping-pong, isn’t it?!

    • Janet said:

      Thanks again Carrie! I humbly accept this award but I’m not sure if I can write as acceptance speech as eloquently as yours. It was brilliant!

      • crubin said:

        Aww, shucks. You made me all warm and fuzzy. Glad you were cool with it. I’m pretty sure you are not a smashed, naked lady, but I go where my brain takes me 🙂

  6. Thank you as well for coming by and checking out my blog!
    I have not really put myself out there but am inspired to keep going by your note!
    And, also to find more interesting and passionate bloggers to fill my reading with variety and like thoughts ; )
    Love your short works and appreciate the challenge to say something with impact in so few words.

    • Janet said:

      Thank you so much for thinking of my blog. That is appreciated.

  8. Thank you for stopping by Onelifethislife! I am happy that you enjoyed the Tree Series post. I have been perusing your blog and it amazing that you can sum up your writings in 50 words. It is a different idea… and I like it! Great blog! Hope to be back soon!

    • Janet said:

      So glad you came by. I did enjoy your Tree Series post. There is so many interesting things about trees, texture, shape, colour… you did a wonderful job capturing all that in your photos.

  9. Great idea! Impossible for me, I am way too verbose. But I enjoy reading it in others!

    • Janet said:

      I glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for visiting.

    • Janet said:

      I might have to take a look at that.

    • Janet said:

      Why thank you Colline, I”ll be over to view the details.

    Hi Janet, do you actually mail postcards with your fiction? After I made my little offer on my blog I thought of your site and thought ‘Oh No, did I copy her idea?’

    • Janet said:

      I don’t do it yet but I in the middle of trying to figure out how to do it. Do you mind if I swing by and see what you did? I wasn’t sure if I needed to hire a programmer or if there was software I could buy.

      • Madison Woods said:

        So far all I’ve done is post an alluded mention of their availability- I’m planning a whole blog post about the plan and intended products soon. If you want to share ideas, email me I’ll tell you what I had in mind 😉

      • Madison Woods said:

        my addy might help: madison at ancientearthwisdom.com 🙂

  11. Hi Janet! Here is another award for you — the ABC award (Awesome Blog Content!). I linked to you in my post. 🙂

    Hi Janet,

    I nominated you for The Genuine Blogger Award and The Reader Appreciation Award. Info can be found here: http://carrierubin.com/2012/05/21/two-awards-and-a-sassy-recipient/

    As always, do not feel pressure to participate. I nominated you because you were one of my earliest followers who continues to come by, and I appreciate your support.

    Have a great day!


    • Janet said:

      Thank you so much. I will definately participate. it’s always good to challenge my introverded nature!

  14. Hi, Janet. I like this theme! Thanks for the ‘like’ on my Wordless Wednesday post. I am a short stories kind of person. I try to read the longer blogs. But definitely no time to read books with more than 200 pages.

    • Janet said:

      Thanks for coming by. I”m glad you like it. (while I haven’t published any on my blog yet, I”m also working on even shorter poetry – 145 characters only)

  15. Patricia said:

    The idea for this blog is wonderful – I really wish there was a group! Very interesting.

  16. cav12 said:

    Hi! I have nominated your blog for the Very Inspiring Bloggers Award. I hope you accept this nomination.
    Regards Luciana

    • Janet said:

      Hi. I’m not really sure what you’re trying to do. I’ve never heard of linking through a tag onto another blog.

  17. Hi Janet. Saw your ‘I Kissed An Android’ over at TRN and just wanted to stop by and congratulate you. It’s an amazing piece of work. Well done.

    • Janet said:

      Wow. Thank you so much Al. It’s such a thrill when someone enjoys something i’ve written. It was very fun to write that pice.

  18. It reads as if you enjoyed writing it. Also, I should have said, I especially liked the transition to the 3rd stanza. Where can I read more of your poetry?

    • Janet said:

      This is actually my first attempt at any kind of formal poetry. I would like to try a Luc Bat next.

    • Janet said:

      Thank you so much Nina. I appreciate this very much.

    Hello. Thanks for dropping by my blog. I find your recent comparison between you and your mother quite amusing.

    I used to live in T.O. We have great memories of our 13 years there. We moved to San Francisco about 16 years ago.

    I hope we’ll continue to cross paths on WordPress.

  20. Mike said:

    You have a great face.

    • Janet said:

      Why thank you so much.

  21. chrisbkm said:

    Great writing and images Janet. Thanks for visiting and commenting on Dancing on Frozen Beaver Ponds… your visit led me to what I have a feeling may become one of my favourite blogs!

    • Janet said:

      Thank you. I hope I don’t disappoint.

  22. Janet, thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your postcard fiction!

  23. Love the stories buried in the pictures — seen and unseen. Very cool.
