Have you ever been tempted to write out your thoughts, a story, or a business report in one sentence - one very l-o-n-g sentence - to either tease the boss, empty your brain, rid yourself of the jitters caused by writer's block, the way of the world, your family feud, or an upcoming interview, and forgetting to complete a sentence, just letting your pen or computer run on and on ("OMG," yells Teacher, "a run-on sentence!") and forget Teacher and that irritating voice of condemnation, and writing your story, report, or thoughts the way they run through your head, placing word after word on paper or computer screen as you begin to notice how your body is relaxing, your brain has been stimulated, and you are having F-U-N, realizing the writer's block has been broken up, the world is continuing on its merry/sad way without your help, your family is going to be your family all your life so get used to their weird ways, and that interview will be a challenge for you to shine and let your words and easy-going manner (brought about by producing a one-sentence piece of writing and knowing all is well and you feel good?

That's what this book is about, 77 stories written by 43 writers from around the world about all kinds of subjects, of varying lengths and writing styles. You'll laugh, cry, wiggle, want to throw something, or want to embrace someone... but you'll have read some amazing stories.
