52 ‘Shorts’ for 2012
50 words limit. A story. A point.
Twas the mission
And here’s the report
48 outta 52 is not a bad score
48 stories…with overtypes galore
I very much enjoyed the task
Sometimes ‘ze shorts’ were quite simply a blast
To break my ‘over-limit’ habit
I’ll end ’49’ …
With a little less rabbit
(5o words EXACTLY :))
“I’m not crying”
Mrs Leaky, In all her glory!
“Yes you are, you’ve been crying for days”
“It’s not me”
“I have another personality you see”
“Meet tap…Leaking tap”
“I’ll get you a new washer”
“Don’t bother, they all snap with the pressure, we don’t install them anymore”
(“This little tap of mine, i’m gonna let it cry, let it cry, let it cry, let it crrrrry”!)
(62 words) (woops)
“I know I said you should always accept gifts graciously darling”
“Yes yes, I know I said you should keep them too”
“But there’s always one; one exception to the rule”
“Darling, it doesn’t go with the wallpaper, sorry”
“Would you like some sweeties instead my little cherub?”
Caressed in a Fortress
Obsessed, Suppressed, Distressed, Blessed, Depressed
Stressed, Countless, Boundless, Fearless, Princess
3 years on, she was…An essayed out mess
At the end
They said she got a something… ‘ology’!; I think
Psy? or Bi?… I think
I thought she clearly deserved an ‘essed’!
Just my opinion…;)
Catch me if meow can Mother Fucker!
The predator came again (yawn)
The Hunter, The Stalker, The Trier, The God of the Web Pilferer’s…The Leader of the Western Plates
But; where oh where was the prize?
“She’s a quick as a fucking cat that one”
Overhearing the Peast, she meow’d with delight and ran…
“Catch me if meow can”
The very worst…of the human condition?
It’s just pain
You’ve lived it before
And you will, again
Now; you have no excuse for not doing everything you ever dreamed of
‘I said go out there and get hurt…And please don’t forget to enjoy the ride’
“Am I ‘a character’, because I have character?”
“I think I’m scared”
“I don’t know what of”
“My emotions, my moods, maybe…”
“They’re so overwhelming; I’m not sure if I even have a base personality”
“Am I a real person?” Read the rest of this entry
I'm looking at the beep and I'm not happy!
I want this
I want that
I can’t cope
I don’t know
I I I!
I I I I I I I I I!
Will you ever find time for… We?
All I ever wanted was… Us!
Or was it the… Weee-nUs?
(42 words! not including the chortles! yay)
It’s not just that you fool
There is a book to write, a degree to finish, an album to complete, I haven’t even started on project piano, and you know I have the theatre to consider, and the boys!
When am I supposed to find time to fucking love you
My bruises are most tender when they turn from purple to ‘mellow yellow’
There is nothing mellow about him when he comes at me in his favourite yellow shirt
I thought cowards were supposed to be yellow by nature
I loved yellow until you…
I was mellow until you
Shorts - Jack Noooooooo
2012 Writing challenge 1 from my Boss/Pimp
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’…
