A story.

I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge.

This is the first post and I will be writing stories in 55 words, (55 fiction) in this challenge. I have Shilpa Garg to thank for this wonderful idea, her theme reveal helped me make up my mind as I was floundering in a million ideas but no specific theme πŸ™‚

Often called β€œmicro” or β€œnano” fiction 55 fiction is the art of creating a complete short story in exactly 55 words, no more, no less. Β 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. Read more about this form of writing here.

Today’s alphabet is A and my story begins with this alphabet.

She had written to him and begged for his help, why had he walked away? The news in the papers next morning had confirmed his fears, she was no more.

  1. that was sad… but it happens in real life. Often the survivors are left with their coulda-shoulda-wouldas.

    1. Aditi, I decided to go for this genre as it makes you compress the entire story in 55 words, glad you liked it. Thanks.

  2. Awesome write, Sulekha- Sweet and Crisp! Loved your idea. Thanks for stopping by at my place too πŸ™‚
