It's time to play "Write a story in 55 words". When you do, be sure to let the G-Man know, then kindly visit as many 55ers as you can.
55 word stories were quite the challenge for someone who
loathed the phrase “500 words or less”.
Every Friday, her brain’s “Editor function” steadily sharpened.
Thinking harder didn’t mean cutting corners.
She read and commented on other 55 works.
For a while, it was fun.
Until, defeated by WoRd VeRiFic8TioN, she surrendered.
And sadly, fiction has become reality. I'm giving up Friday 55. I simply don't have the time to "play fair"....which to me means if you post, you should go and read others. And I LOVE reading what each of you writes. But the number of sites which have been forced to choose Word Verification has become too numerous and those @!*# words are getting longer and longer. And yes, I'm tired of having to re-type those stupid words because the squiggly "l" melded into a "t" and I typed an "H". When frustration replaces the reason you came to play, it's time to take your toys and walk back home with a little self respect still in tact.
Oh, I'll probably pop in from time to time. So have a great Friday....EVERY Friday.
