Day #1 Writing Challenge – 50 Word Stories

The silly splinter jammed under my finger came out tonight after it had embedded itself in my hand for several hours today.  Itchy and sore are the best words to describe the wound.  Once done I then proceeded with the writing challenge.  I started a little later tonight, much later than expected so I looked for a short competition to kick start this challenge off.  I came across this little gem:

The submission has been entered and as an added twist I had to include a third person biography which was something new but the words just seem to pour out in coherent sentences, like it was all stored in my brain waiting for this opportunity.

I recommend giving it a go, it’s free to enter and there’s a chance to feature on their website.

Predator by Tanya Butler

He was lurking near the kitchen, peering around the door, going unnoticed.  Optimal situation. His line of fire was clear and precise. The target would never know it’s harrowing fate. Silence all around.

Then “BHAM!” Chip pounced on the fly that had been taunting his fluffy cat head all morning.

Day #1 – challenge accepted and submitted.

I’m off to bed now.  Keep creating wonderful characters, vivid settings and magnificent worlds writers!
