55 Fiction Friday! February 8, 2008

All the details on what 55 Fiction is and how to play are at the end of the post. Come on, you can do it!

Strange creatures emerged from the glowing light. One had hooves for feet. Another creature resembled a wolf yet walked erect. While Jill watched in horror, they reached out, grabbing her lover. Seemingly drugged, he went with them. He joined them in their strange, colorful land only returning home for short visits.

Damn World of Warcraft.

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.

She was overcome by the sheer multitude of dots swirling in an endless maze before her. “What Happened?” she wondered. “Is it just my eyes?” She blinked hard, reached forward and steadied herself to focus on a singular spot. She was determined NOT to loose this round of “Chicken Foot”.

And another for you:

Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.
Is this true love or what?

I do not need to know what Chicken Foot is - I get addicted to the strangest games.

As for your other one, I love it! Too funny.

Found your site from duchess jane's - just wanted to say hi.

This sounds like a neat idea - I'll have to try it one of these days.

Perhaps you can find a good "World of Warcraft" Widow Support group and more than likely there's a good Chicken Foot game group that can help fill the void in the meantime. :)
