#50PreciousWords 2021 Entry

You know this blog entry is about a contest, right?

Vivian Kirkfield has a yearly contest, called #50PreciousWords, where she challenges writers to create a full story (with arc) in 50 words or less!

50 words.

A full story.

I know.


This year, there were 770 entries! The fact that 770 writers were able to create stories in under 50 words is an amazing feat. And I love how contest writing inspires ideas and new stories. It’s the loveliest domino effect.

Having written a new story is always a prize in and of itself.

Uh, also… I am absolutely thrilled to have placed this year with my entry! Vivian’s blog crashed due to the 11,000+ comments so Ive posted my story here:

STELLA LOOKED UP (46 words)
By Nicole Loos Miller

Stella looked up
The night sky
Full of promise
Hope
She made a wish

Stella looked down
Piles of books
Formulas and numbers
Knowledge
She made a plan

Stella looked ahead
Screens full of data
Knobs and buttons
Adventure
She smiled

3…

BLAST OFF!
