Creating the 50 word story
Fifty-word stories (exactly 50 words) seem difficult, but are actually easy to write. By writing them you rapidly learn the skills of conciseness, shortening, and word choice, skills that will help all your writing. In this class you will write a 50 word story and submit it to fiftywordstories.com. Stories from this class will be published. This description contains 82 words. As an exercise, shorten it to 50. You can do it. The presenter, Harry Demarest, has published 40 short works.
