Mignettes

Mignettes

My friends and I have take to writing what we call mignettes. This is a compound word which means mini vignettes, and they are for the purpose of practicing expressing ideas and stories in a short &/or brief form. Since we struggle to be brief, we felt that this exercise would be beneficial. We felt that by giving it our own name that we would enjoy doing them more. As such, I will be publishing mignettes I have written from time to time.

For informational purposes, this is the definition of a vignette.
