55 Friday

For the last several weeks on Friday I have been doing Flash Fiction (or nano fiction) over at Susie's blog.
The 55 Friday originated over here.
The idea is that the fiction should have exactly 55 words, at least one discernable character and a storyline.
She felt the pressure building inside her.
She tingled, her body was ready, crying out for release.
Her breathing became more rapid and her eyes closed.
Her spine arched, as a huge gasp of air filled her lungs.
Her face contorted and she gave voice to her satisfaction.
It felt so very good to sneeze.
It is possible my cold influenced my topic choice.
So there ya have it, wax eloquent or something.

Sneezing is a good thing! Have you been able to squeeze out any of those technicolor sneezes like I have?

Logophile said...

Miss Lissa~ Thanks, sorry to gross you out with tales of my secretions, I will try to be more thoughtful in the future.

Lime~ Thanks, glad you enjoyed it!

Egan~ I apologize profusely, I shall write Bill Gates immediately and tell him the word count feature of MS Word is not up to your standards.

Egan said...

Wise you are Logophile.

Logophile said...

Kick ass this weekend!

Logophile said...

Thanks Kat!

Franci said...

What a challenge!
And what a great solution.
I counted and found 55, including the 'a', which is really not a word.
