55 On Friday explained courtsey the Write Tribe‘s blog-
Often called “micro” or “nano” fiction 55 fiction is the art of creating a complete short story in exactly 55 words, no more, no less. Not an essay, not a poem, not a bunch of random thoughts, no musings. Just a potent piece of pure fiction that you’ve dexterously composed in 55 words.
55 fiction – the rules
Like haiku, 55 fiction challenges you to pack in a lot in just a few words and has a structure to it, with four elements:
- A setting – the story must happen somewhere – in your mind, in the forest, in your neighbor’s house, in your garden

- Resolution – a solution that wraps up the story, giving the reader a good takeaway.
