F is for Fifty Five Fiction !

Fifty Five fiction is where you have to write a story in no more than 55 words.
I love writing Fifty Five fiction because it really tests your ability to express yourself in limited words. 


Here is something I wrote Today.


Ripoff ! 

Maybe we should let it be. 
No! This needs to be done.
Some things are best left uncovered.
But this sure needs to see the light of the day. 
Well I can’t do it. Will you do it for me ?
A sigh of exasperation.Oh all right! 
Ow !!
And the Band-Aid was ripped off unceremoniously.

  6. Fun fun fun! I don't think I can express myself clearly in 550 words, let alone 55! Great job. Just crisp and I loved it.

  8. I read it on my phone first thing early morning and thought, wow! Good one. :) I think too by restricting to 55 words we test our ability to say it in the fewest words possible.

  14. Writing fiction in just 55 words is a real challenge, and you pulled it off so well. Even though there were no characters or plot, I felt as if I was the third person in that scene.
