Are you ready for the 50-word challenge?
But now the folks at Daily Lit have challenged their readers to also become writers by crafting “mini-sagas” — short stories that are exactly 50 words long. Exactly. No more, no less. (For more on mini-sagas, see pages 119-120 of AWNM.)
Here’s my 50-word tale:
When I was shot, fear seized me at first. No surprise that. But once I realized I wasn’t going to die – despite the thermonuclear pain and widening puddle of weirdly warm blood – my mind recalibrated. And one thought, comforting yet disturbing, leapt into my head: I need to Tweet this.
Take the challenge yourself here.
