I am trying my hand at a true challenge for me; brevity. It is called the 100 word challenge. Participants respond to a prompt each week by writing a 100 word entry for that prompt. The prompt precedes my tiny story and is in bold print.
…you bought her what…
The Now and Then
After Kate’s 10th birthday party, her mom and Aunt Margie chatted. “You bought her what keeps her focused on the now, Margie. Perfume.” “Heaven Scent perfume, Patti; just like Kate” said Margie dryly.
“What about what you bought her, Patti? It makes no sense”. “Yes it does”, said Patti. “You bought her what she will read once, and a notebook,” said Margie. “I bought her Little Women and a journal to hold her first story” said Patti. “It helps her see what she might be; a writer”. “Ah”, said Margie, “that is heaven sent. We gave her now and then!”
I am then to post the link for the 100 word story at: http://jfb57.wordpress.com/
Please read first!
This is a plea from the one coordinating the challenge–looking for readers…
Many of you know about the 100 Word Challenge that is run from 100wc.net. It is the original 100 word project and is for children under 16. We desperately need some more folks to comment of these brilliant pieces of work. I would be really grateful if you could ad a note and a link on your blogs to encourage your readers to get involved. Many thanks!
