I am taking on a writing challenge called ” The Fifty“. You have to tell a story or write about a moment in no less or no more than 50 words. This might be difficult for me. However, I love challenges. Tell me I can’t do something and I will try my hardest to prove you wrong ;). Well, here we go. By the way, this first paragraph will not count towards my fifty word count. It starts right now….
A moment in time. A smile. A laugh. What were you thinking? It appears as though you are having the time of your life. Did you ever think it would end? It seems as if you felt this moment would last forever. Or was it simply a moment in time?
So, what do you think? “What was my inspiration”, you ask? I actually had two inspirations. First, I saw a picture recently of my grandfather’s parents and siblings sitting around a table when they were young. Everyone looked so happy. I was thinking of that picture. Another one was this painting from The Mysteries of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg. I had mentioned him in a previous blog. I absolutely love his work!
Why don’t you try a Fifty! Fifty words come up really quickly so think wisely about what you want to say. Leave it in the comments below. I would love to read them (as I am sure everyone else does!).
