Font Filled Flash Fiction

To celebrate 200 most deserved followers, Madeleine at Scribble and Edit is hosting a blogfest.

PART 1: Your challenge is to write a Flash Fiction of maximum 500 words that includes as many names of the various different fonts as you can include. You must make the language flow smoothly as your font characters and objects unfold.
There's a chance to win a moleskin notebook or an amazon book voucher.

My piece is 195 words, with 30 font names shoehorned in.

Congratulations on your 200 followers Madeleine!


  1. Wow! So very clever, Dom! You never cease to amaze me.

  2. Oh, very nicely done, Dom. I'm so glad you knew better than to use script caps. That always makes me grind my teeth.
    The font names aren't what they used to be in my day, but it's nice to see good old Bodoni in there.
    I'm going to see if I can come up with something, although it makes an old newspaper compositor cringe to see so many different typefaces on one page. My father's ashes must be rolling over in their undisclosed location.

  3. Brilliant, Dom! Well written. Just think, that's one font name every 6.5 words, and a fun read.

  4. Very, Very, CLEVER, Dom.

    I great little dialogue and story. I hope I can do a fraction as well.

    Just to clarify Part1 is this blogfest with an amazon book voucher prize.
    Part 2 is to leave a comment on the form saying why you'd like to win a Moleskine Notebook. :O)

  8. Hi Dom,
    Loved the story and great ratio of font names to word count :-)
    Good stuff !
    All best

  9. Too fun! I loved that you also actually used the fonts in the story. On a side note, I love Kristen Bell! (been watching Veronica Mars dvds all weekend...) :) Best of luck to you!
