Firstly, I’d like to thank Michelle at Beir Bua Press - not only for publishing (Un)Natural Elements and for trusting my vision for this collection, but also for her dedication to experimental writing and running a press which makes publications like this one possible. Many of these stories were written as tweet-length stories from daily prompts on Twitter under the hashtag: Very Short Story 365 (#vss365). After a few people kindly suggested I collate them, I decided to look at all the stories I had written to date and to my delight found myself able to see patterns and themes. There was also a strong use of nature within them and the idea to divide the collection into elements emerged organically. Once the structure of nine elements was in place, I completed the collection with some longer stories - some of which have been previously published, whereas others are new. To everyone reading this collection - thank you - and I sincerely hope you enjoy these tiny tales.
