55 Fiction Friday! August 10, 2007
It's time! It's time for 55 Fiction Friday!
Last week, I mentioned the 55 Fiction Friday I'd seen out there on the interwebs. Recap: The quick explanation is that a work of 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.
Some great examples are here..
If you'd like to play along, I tell you how at the end of this post.
Here's my 55 for this week:
Stranger and Stranger
Caitlin approached the register. The cashier rang up the items, completing the sale. Mistrusting her ears and thinking this place had odd customs, Caitlin repeated the cashier’s question.
“Do I wanna beg for these?”
Prepared to plead for her purchases, Caitlin didn’t realize the Wisconsin-born employee had actually asked, “Do you wanna bag for these?”
MrWurdi contributes his 55:
"Oui, run your hands across her back, eh? Feel ze delicate strength in... how
you say? Spine?"
"Caress ze curves and textures with ze finger tips. And ze... how you say? Mound? Eez puffy like silk, no?"
"Touch! Eez okay, no one sees."
"Come, eez for you, yes?"
I decided to buy the loveseat.
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.
