Weekly Writing Challenge: Fifty

This week’s weekly writing challenge is pretty interesting.  I’ve never heard of writing a fifty before.  Maybe thats because I’m still relatively new and exploring this whole writing thing.  In my mind, its a lot easier to write more words than less, but thats because I tend to ramble.

Now if you don’t know what is a “fifty”, here is what the challenge is all about:

For this week’s challenge, you must write a fifty-word story. Not five thousand, not five hundred, but precisely fifty words…A fifty, much like a poem, challenges readers to tie up the loose ends, interpret the blank spaces between the lines, and use their imagination to fill in the gaps. – Weekly Writing Challenge

Let’s see how my fifty looks like, funny enough this scene has been the inspiration of a more extensive story I’ve wanted to write:

The room shifted through a rainbow of colors.  The rhythm of the music: its beats pulsing away. I closed my eyes to capture the moment: the movement disappeared, the melody faded into the background and my mind fell into the surreal. My eyes opened, everything became clear. It was him.

Have you ever written a fifty? What do you think of it?
