Flash Fiction Friday- a true tribute


every friday write a short story, poem or prose, of 55 words, no more, no less then report it to the g-man!!


"trying to come up with only 55 words
can be tricky for someone who is a nerd
writing and deleting over and over again
i still wonder where do i begin?
i haven't the talent to match wits with the rest
yet i love being in the company of literary bests
thanks for playing G-man!!"

Here you go g-man, a tribute to a true classic, you. and all the rest of the 55er's. it is such a treat and a joy to be a part of this community and i appreciate each and everyone who takes the time to play and comment every friday. i hope to check as many out this week as possible.

a 55 about writing a 55,
fun read.

Eric Alder said...

You did it! :)

I find that coming up with an idea is the hardest part of writing a 55. But once I have an idea, I write it out as briefly as I can - which will inevitably be too many words - then I go back through and re-connect the nouns to the verbs more efficiently.



WORD VERIFICATION: dawqyli
DEFINITION: how you feel the next morning after taking Nyquil at night.

What a great idea! A tribute, a thank you, and 55 about this meme. Great 55.

Mine's (55) Fifteen is far too young . . .

very fun! I love it!

Me said...

You pretty much summed up the way I feel every week! But I agree with Eric, once the idea is there, you can usually cut it down to the most basic bits.

Great 55!
