THANKS MEL!

As I contemplated this new form of writing, feelings of reluctance and lack of direction filled my thoughts. How could I possibly write a “snapshort” having never heard of such a thing? Then Mel came to the rescue, showing by example that a story in three sentences can be done! (50)



THE BULLY

Glancing up as the recess bell rang, I found myself looking into the evil eyes of Joey Baxter. Fearfully, I walked out the door of the classroom, and then smiled with relief as I ran into Mr. J. who was on yard duty. Sure, I would love to assist today! (50)



WEDDING JITTERS

The bride, who’d vowed SHE wouldn’t be late, sat with tapping toes as the minutes dragged into half an hour past the appointed time. Where was the fancy car to take her to the church? Finally, she heard the horn of the misguided best man claiming, “Better late then never!” (50)



BIRTH DAY

It is so cozy and warm in here, and even though it may be a little crowded, I never want to leave. Hey, where’s this squeezing and pushing and shoving coming from and what on earth is that bright light? WAAAWAAAWAAA, I want my Mama! (45)



PARCHED PANSIES

The sun beat down relentlessly upon our heads for days and the soil around was cracked and hard. My roots started to shrivel as my head began its final bow. But then it rose in gratitude as, unexpectedly, drip by drip, a refreshing summer shower slowly fell all around. (49)


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Donna, Loved "The Bully"! Who would have thought one could really tell a whole story in 50 words or less? Ha ha. With love, Mary

These are all interesting. It's hard for me to chose my favorite.
Melody Tregear 15 Sep 2003
Donna, well done! You're getting the hang of it. Not so easy, is it? I particularly liked your BIRTH one - very good.
