For Writers – #50PreciousWords

Challenging yourself is one of the best ways to learn. Joining a challenge with other people can be a lot of fun. Like NaNoWriMo, for instance. But this challenge is pretty much the opposite of NaNoWriMo. If you couldn’t guess from the title, #50PreciousWords is a challenge to write an entire story, beginning, middle, and ending, in just 50 words. I took a shot.

Poor Sweater

Elza Kinde

Theo ripped his favorite sweater.
This was very bad.
Would it be thrown away?
It is still a great sweater.
These stripes!
Those pockets!
He took the poor sweater to Mimi.
She took out her sewing kit.
Mimi let Theo help fix the sweater.
Theo’s sweater is even better now.

50 words

    1. NaNoWriMo is a lot of fun if you like a challenge! I usually break it over a few different novels since Middle Grade books are shorter. If you’d like to test it out, Camp NaNoWriMo starts in April. It’s nice because you can pick your own goals for the month.
