Oh man it killed me on the word count! Needless to say, I'm in it for the fun and not part of the contest.

If you want any extra applause for contestants let me know.

As a recovering verbosian, this was a particularly challenging task. Kudos on your e-vile and entertaining parameters


Looking forward to reading the entries --- SO many talented people here!

I wanted to write first before doing so, and here it is: Tough Break

I don't comment on every story, generally, but I love the entries so far.

That is all!

*nods to Gordi*



Are we supposed to submit two entries or is that just "an option"?
Also, so many takes on the theme. Mine was quite vanilla, of course but I see a different take now...
(pitfalls of reading other entries, too many thoughts in one's head!)

Ooooohhhh! GREAT!

I go on hiatus and when I come back, you hit us (Me) with a 50 word short story challenge!

I did try though, 3 times, but the weather and snowblower beckons once again. (That was actually one of the poems...but it sucked.)

This one is definitely a conundrum. Tomorrow is a new day! But "That's life!"

Too funny! The above is just seven words to long.

Hi birdy,
Under the rules for this one, you are "allowed" two entries, but it's by no means compulsory! (You choose.)
cheers,

here is my take on the subject


Down then Up

I noticed that most of the comments relate to how difficult it is to keep within 50 words, so I thought that I'd give it a go for myself and... IT IS Soooooo unbelievably hard!!!!! LOL

Sorry about that!

Here are my own wee takes on the theme (just for fun - not an entry!)

A Tribute to "That's Life"

*N.B. I've lumped the two takes together in the one thread - Please don't do that for your actual entries!!!! (Keep 'em separate to keep within the 50 word limit!)



cheers!
G

Loving this.

only takes a wee while to read a bunch of entries, yet I can roll them over in my mind for ages after.
So many different thoughts, concepts and scenes in there.
Great work Gordi.

Loving the trib story too
