Merritt explains his thinking behind the Quickies concept: ďIíve been reading a lot of very short fiction, and I enjoyed writing 101 Two-Letter Words, the poetry book about the shortest words you can use in Scrabble. And Iíve been listening to a lot of French baroque harpsichord music. Harpsichord doesnít lend itself to languor. So Iíve been thinking about one instrument at a time, playing for about a minute or so and then stopping, and Iíve been thinking of narratives that are only a few lines long.
