This post is about trying new things and pushing my limits. The challenge was to write a story in exactly 50 words! How can you write a story in 50 words?! Well, I did give it a try and here it is.

your comments and feedbacks are highly appreciated.



I sat stiffly on the sofa and stared at the TV not seeing anything, desire raged within me. I resolved to count to fifty before making my move.

She smiled up at me then and placed her head on my shoulders.

I was late.

Her soft snoring punctuated my countdown.

  1. I actually counted the words physically to be sure you weren’t pulling a fast one and imagine my surprise?! *laughing*.

    Wow! Besides getting fifty words exactly, the writing itself makes a whole lotta sense. Double thumbs up Doc, you nailed it absolutely!


drop me a line, maybe?
