55 Fiction Friday! November 16, 2007
It's late but... it's time again for 55 Fiction Friday! All the details on what it is and how to play at the end of the post. Come on, you can do it!
MrWurdi's 55 for the week:
When We're Apart
“I’ll call you and tell you goodnight,” was the dish.
Promised later, with a dollop of love.
An elaborate dish, yet hazardous offering.
If left unattended, it poisons the heart.
Yet the call comes, in the wee hours.
Like an antidote, rescue for the heart.
The banquet was saved, lusciously consumed.
Love endures, once again.
My 55 for the week:
They had a mission to accomplish. One went for supplies. The second member planned while yet another built up his strength and a fourth abstained from food. The fifth member was a weak link with an incontinence problem who pissed himself all the way home. They were the members of the This Little Piggy crew.
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..
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.
