short but sweet

A friend entered a "fiction writing contest" a while back.

Write a story in 140 CHARACTERS or less. Spaces and punctuation count as characters.

I thought I'd take a shot at it. (it's the most writing I've started and actually finished in years)

He was born loudly one snowy morning, he lived his life bravely one adventurous day at a time and he died peacefully late one stormy night.


Your turn . . .

Ah, thanks! I was just foolin' around. You should try it too. It's weird coming up with a beginning, middle and end in one sentence.

oh, it has to be a single sentence AND 140 characters? that seems harder to me than just 140 characters... HMMM.

*urp!* I don't *think* it's supposed to be just one sentence. I just did mine that way. So, no, not just one phrase. Just keep it to 140 characters. (I made it more complicatd for myself than I needed to.)

Oh, goodness, thanks! It was just to see if I could.
I'm mostly proud of starting and finishing a writing 'project'. LOL!

How's everything in your sandbox these days?
