55 Fiction Friday! September 7, 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.
Here's my 55 for this week:
Fifty-five, fifty-five. It rang in her head. Why was it so hard? It seemed simple enough. It was simple, right? Fifty-five, fifty-five. No more, no less. Just fifty-five. She pounded her fists in frustration and with an irritated yet resigned sigh turned to look at him.
“Ma’am? Do you know how fast you were going?”
Knock, Knock! Who's There?
Here's to you, church door knocker.
That's right, you took the time to attend classes about our Lord Savior and now you're spreading the word.
You learned how to knock like a cop with a warrant - demanding attention to your passive message of love.
Pamphlet delivered, name checked off. Next!
It's all about the love.
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.
