Fiction 55 – First attempt

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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:

  1. Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)
  2. A setting,
  3. One or more characters,
  4. Some conflict, and
  5. A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)
  6. The title of the story is not part of the overall word count, but it still canโ€™t exceed seven words.



Time was slipping by and she found not a single salesperson. Eventually, she stumbled upon someone in blue shirt.

โ€œCan you help me find this?โ€, she begged.

โ€œWish I could. But I cannot help you find itโ€, he replied.

โ€œWhy can’t you?โ€ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

โ€œI just happened to wear a blue t-shirt today. I don’t work here!โ€
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 ๐Ÿ˜€ 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!!

  1. nice.. now u cant call this fiction.. coz it was real.. so its just a 55.. n it was not at all a pathetic attempt.. a good one to start with.. do continue..


  2. Arey avada!
    That was a great giggling while typing this comment! Great first attempt! Like pawan does, if i should give you marks, you got 7.5/10
    I would say it is a pretty decent score for a first attempt! You have the potential to write!Expecting some more from you…
    So tell me? How it was to write a 55Fiction? Easy?


    1. wow! 7.5 for the first attempt thank u thank u thank u so much girl :).. I found it tough to narrate in just 55 words.. kept counting the words and they kept exceeding.. finally arrived at 55 words!!


  3. hey…very nice one….. I liked it especially because its different..I read many 55’s in many blogs…literally all had a same theme… Death at the end… tears at the end… or else lover gets ditched…. Got bored of such kinds… Atlast found ur very different 55 and also one of my friends venky wrote a hilarious 55… you both stand out from the crowd… Good one…


  4. Actually I liked the subject as it is fresh. Usually people try to bring some serious subject to the fore in their 55 fiction. Whereas I think it should be like a small snippet of life.


  5. Great first attempt.
    Liked it….hahahahahahahaha
