55 Fiction Friday! August 31, 2007
It's time again for 55 Fiction Friday!
Quick explanation: 55 fiction is a very, very short story of exactly 55 words. It needs to have a character, conflict and resolution.
The Wikipedia article on 55 Fiction is here and some great examples are here..
If you'd like to play along, I tell you how at the end of this post.
Katia contributes a 55:
Crawling out from the darkness, she suddenly saw clearly. Her throat, raw from the intense smoke, her head ringing from the wail of the sirens. Finally, her senses were strong enough to reach for something to knock down the source of the wailing that rang unmercifully. Her toast ruined, she sought a slice of cheese.
My wife hates rodents. Well, really any small animal of questionable origin.
If it doesn't go woof, meow, or moo she gets all skeeved.
I feel horrible; every time we turn around her hands go up and she's screaming. They are everywhere - no way I can protect her here.
But the kids really love Disney!
Here's my 55 for this week:
“Keep digging! We have to dig deeper!”
The urgency and concern were evident in the voices of the workers. They’d been working hard but time was running out.
“Please, hurry! I know we can save them.”
No one was sure exactly what it would take but the team was determined. They must save the boobies*.
Come play! Add your story to the comments or put it on your blog and I'll link to it. It's fun. You'll like it.
*This year will be my third year participating in this race. In the next few days, I'm going to be blogging about the most wonderful group of people and what's being done to find a cure for breast cancer.
