Vivian wanted to know if she could write a story with only fifty words. Then, remembering all of her writer friends, she wondered if they could do it too. The challenge was born! It has only a three main rules. It must be written for kids under the age of 12 years. It must be only 50 words. It must have a beginning, middle and end. That's it. It can be written in any form--free verse, rhyme, or prose, and can be serious or silly. Sounds easy doesn't it? Not!
But I tried it anyway. So for fun here is my entry.
It's twilight. The moths gather. Is the coast clear?
Shadows flicker dangerously close, but they edge into the open.
Unfolded wings are flittering and fluttering as they angle toward the light.
The dance has begun, but someone else sees something different.
"Dinner," says the bat. Slurp! The dance is over.
Vivian's first children's book, Sweet Dreams, Sarah, is now available at Amazon, and check her out on Facebook, Twitter, and at her website. Here are the links.
