55 Fiction Friday! November 30, 2007

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:

Love Story
In all of time and books of rhyme
A story is told of love unkind

Unkind for all who fail to know
How deep love can truly go

To love enough by worldly beliefs
May simply continue life’s grief

But to find them and give one’s due
Can be called “The Taming of the Shrew”

My 55 for the week:

Deep Thought
Hands lightly resting on her knees, she meditated. As the repeating single syllable of her mantra caused the corporeal world to begin drifting away, her mind put a picture of the spelled-out word before her.

As she contemplated her ultimate reality, she was distracted by a single thought.

“Do electricians use ‘ohm’ as their mantra?”

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.. You can also click on the 55 Fiction label below to see what Wordy Bitch and Wordy Bitch readers have done in the past.
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.

With anticipation heightened from the long drive to the country, the search began. Running through the maze of cedar and pine, she longed to meet that special one…one that would make her holiday meaningful. The search ended as quickly as it began when her eyes beheld the 7-foot Douglas fir.

Tiss The Season
During this season of giving and receiving, there are a two simple etiquette rules to be followed to ensure everyone enjoys the holidays.

The first, always treat people as you would like to be treated. A little courtesy goes a long way.

Lastly, stop the season all together and just go get your flu shot.

I never heard of this but it is cool, let me see;

There once was a man from Norway

Who tried jerking off in a sleigh

The air was so fridged

it froze his balls ridged

and all he could cum was frappe

Nope sorry not enuff words

Mr Wurdi's is great. To write it in a poem takes real skill.
