Number 55


Story of How I Wrote My first 55 word fiction…


‘One… Two… Three…’
My mom asked, ‘What are you counting?’
‘Words…
Twelve, Thirteen, Fourteen…’
She gave me a puzzling look.
I continued
‘Twenty-three… Twenty-four…
My first flash fiction is getting ready, Ma…
Thirty-five Thirty-six…
Oh… it’s tough to write a story with just few words…’ Sigh!
Three more…
‘Whoa… Fifty-five…!’ J



Mission Accomplished!

PS - This is my 55th post... So I made this number 55 as the theme for it.
