50 Word Thursday’s – A New Beginning.

Deb Whittam hosted these fantastic challenges every Thursday, only Thursday the 27th was her last one. She has decided to start something new.

See here:


I have always loved these challenges and I know I’m not the only one, so I asked Deb if she’d mind if I tried to keep them going. I also asked Teresa, The Haunted Wordsmith, if she’d like to take turns hosting them, share the burden and spread the love. πŸ˜‰

So, this is my announcement that we are going to try to keep 50 word Thursday’s going.

This will be our first one.

So here’s the rules

1 Completed piece must be in multiples of 50 words – maximum of 250 words. Anything is acceptable – poetry, story, anecdote.

2 There will be a photo and a random phrase that I will take from the current book I am reading – you can use either or both

3 Please pingback and tag 50 word Thursday, so I can do a summary on the Thursday morning.  You can either put your piece in the comments on this post or do a post of your own.

The Phrase: “You’ll stay here until it’s time to go. I’ll take you to the transport and then you’re on your own”

Phrase taken from The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris.

Have fun, and pass the word on πŸ™‚

People are far too complicated to be able to describe in a few words so I am not even going to try.

  1. How are we going to work this? Do I post it this week? I can’t remember when it went out, but I think it was midnight Australian time right (Aus is 17 hours ahead of me lol)

    1. Well, here are my thoughts. I thought I would do a wash up of submissions this evening and then you post a new one to go out tomorrow morning. The original had a fixed time slot but we can each cater to our own time frames, I’ll post Thursday AM GMT and do a wash-up on the following wednesday PM. What do you think?


    2. Okay, that works. I’ll schedule my post to go out at Midnight GMT on Thursday morning (that’s only +6 ahead of me).
