Here is my first pathetic attempt at writing a Fiction 55. I like reading fiction 55 a lot so I thought let me attempt writing one.
My inspirations for this were Sid, Shruti and Shilpa, who are 55 fiction experts 🙂
Wikipedia says “55 Fiction is a form of microfiction that refers to the works of fiction limited to a maximum of fifty-five words.”
A literary work will be considered 55 Fiction if it has:
- Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)
- A setting,
- One or more characters,
- Some conflict, and
- A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)
- The title of the story is not part of the overall word count, but it still can’t exceed seven words.
Time was slipping by and she found not a single salesperson. Eventually, she stumbled upon someone in blue shirt.
“Can you help me find this?”, she begged.
“Wish I could. But I cannot help you find it”, he replied.
“Why can’t you?” 😮
“I just happened to wear a blue t-shirt today. I don’t work here!”
Many times while shopping, I faced this situation wherein because of confusion, I mistook a customer for a salesperson. And realized later after getting embarrassed 😀 These days, I start with “Do you work for this store?” and then proceed with my query.
Any suggestions to improve my fiction 55? I would love to hear suggestions!!
