Writing Duck Pond (a story in 50 words) [E]


Recommended Posts

The assignment was to write a story in exactly 50 words. I like how mine turned out, but am interested in seeing what people think:

[i]Queenie is sitting by the pond, feeding the ducks, in a $600 wedding dress, and remembering this morning:
??lawfully wedded husband??
?Why didn?t you shave for my wedding?? she asks.
She can not marry a man who will not shave for his own wedding.
The ducks are hungry.[/i]

I suppose it could be interpreted as somewhat trite, but keep in mind it was a rather confining assignment.

[SIZE=1]Interesting, most interesting.

Given the fifty word limit imposed on the story, I have to say that you've done a great job Godel. While there's only fifty words, and thus there can't be huge detail, they way you've laid it out and written it actually expresses much more detail than is actually written, if you know what I mean. If you're willing I'd love to see more fifty word stories.[/SIZE]
