They could be less than a thousand words long, but had to contain some dialogue, a decent setting, and a twist in the expectations of the reader. He decided to give them until, say, the tenth of January 2020 to send them to his inbox, and then he would unleash them on an unsuspecting public.

I'll try to get one in, but I'm in the process of moving. It's a hassle believe me. We needed a house on one floor---my wife can't climb steps anymore--and I found one not too far.
