Two Offerings – Weekly Writing Challenge: Fifty

Weekly Writing Challenge: Fifty

This week’s The Daily Post writing challenge is hosted by Vincent Mars. The challenge is to write a story of exactly 50 words in length – no more, no less. 

I wrote two – but since it’s getting late, I will stop here. I plan to do this again though – found it fun & intriguing 😉 Great way to come up with material for new projects!


Isabell was an easy going, patient, free spirit stuck in an over-organized, intolerant, overachiever’s body. The combination just didn’t mesh, so consequently Isabell was at odds with herself, seldom at peace, sometimes conflicted. Her conscience and righteousness didn’t walk hand in hand with her survival of the fittest street smarts.

The Moment Was Gone

He left her an instant message that said he hadn’t come back to see how she was and say goodbye. He had come back to ask her to marry him, and leave with him to start their new life together. But she had already fallen in love with another man.

      Thanks Charly & you should try it! Would love to read yours! At first, I thought it would be difficult, as I tend to be quite wordy at times – but it is a great exercise in succinctness & getting to the point attempting to use the most efficient language. Actually, I need to do it again here soon . . . glad you commented to bring it back on my radar 🙂

        Was my pleasure, you´re a great writer. I´m just human and don´t have the hours of the day to read you as much as I can. But now with the broken ankle and sitting around all day, except today and tomorrow, weeee ha! You might even get bored of me stalking you.

        Well, I am quite unique that´s for sure. I don´t even bore my own mother and I´m stuck with her in this house for a long time sitting around with a cast in the freaking leg, actually don´t bore myself, sometimes I´ll give you that

    I should add,that conveying a story that makes sense and by the way your description in the first story “Isabella” I thought it was great, so a story that has a continuity( unlike this comment) conveying quite a lot of things it is a great challenge. Great read Sadie, you´re one of the masters.

      I like Isabella, too 😉 She’s even closer to my heart than Lyla is. Isabella’s story is completely different from Lyla’s – another character story I have worked on and off for many many years ❤
      One of the masters, LOL, I doubt that, but your compliment made me smile for sure – maybe even blush, Mr. Priest 😉 Thank you so much for that!! Hope you have a wonderful day and it's sunny where you are!
