The rules are, each short must be 50 words or less; and each must tell a story with a point. My first one turned into a mini drama well before print and I can’t find the bugger! So I’m starting slightly late in the year; with this ‘new’ 1st attempt!
These will eventually be found ‘all in order’ for your convenience, on my page entitled ‘Dawny’s Mini seriessss, Writing Challenges from my Boss/Pimp and Sideline Squit’.
If you would like to join in the ‘Shorts challenge’ please doooo lead me to your snippets. 50 words certainly gets the imaginative juices flowing! (see novembrepleut.wordpress.com for some gems…)
Here be my first ‘shot at a short’…
Jack ran up the hill
Jill had been waiting there for him forever
Impatient! Because once he arrived, she had to start counting the hours ‘til he rolled down the hill to his death.
He said everything he didn’t want to though, so he died smiling as he sadly slammed into the lorry at the bottom of the lush green hill.
63 words! Sorry Boss! 13 over my limit but I’m working on getting all succinct!
