A Day is Worth 55 Words

Well, I've done it. This post is my 50th, a milestone I didn't think I'd reach. This project has been more entertaining than I thought it would be, when it was just a way to curb some summer boredom. So, in honor of this...momentous(?) occasion, here is the story that gave me the inspiration for this site. It is only 55 words, which is in some respects even more challenging. Here we go:

Everyone said the boy was observant,
But he couldn’t quite see it.
The girl read the last line of every book.
She had dreams, but tripped on her own shoelaces.
“I remember her, always stuck in the future.”
“Will he ever stop thinking of yesterday?”
They crashed, and saw each other for the first time.

  1. Didn't like this one that much. Stick to 100 words. The two of those I've read were incredible.
