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.

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

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