50 Word Thursday – The Results!

So, Fire the Cannon! The contest is over for another week.

In collaboration with Teresa, The Haunted Wordsmith, I am continuing the 50 word Thursday Challenge that was hosted by Deb Whittam of the blog Twenty Four. Deb has decided to call it a day with the challenge and move on to other things.

Teresa and I both thought it such a shame and have agreed to try keeping it going, taking it in turns to play host.


The Challenge was to write a story or poem in 50 word multiples up to a maximum of 250 words in response to a photo prompts and a sentence.


And here are the words:

“They travelled in comfortable companionship, talking about their daily lives.” – Tears of the Giraffe by Alexander McCall Smith

Here is my post from last Thursday:


We had a really good selection of entries this week.

50 Word Thursdays 9 –Friends for Life

How Do Women Do It?

From The Diary of a Country Bumpkin:

Four friends went on a trip, they travelled in comfortable companionship, talking about their daily lives. Good friends can lose touch for years but it doesn’t matter. One of them said, “I killed my wife, I’ve been in prison. “Oh,” said the others and continued to look at the view.

And not forgetting this one by Fandango!




I recommend you have a read and check out these great tales.

Thank you to everyone that took part.

I feel it has been a fantastic achievement.


Now I am passing the baton on to that guru of writing challenges, Teresa, the Haunted Wordsmith and I’m off to relax with a nice cup of tea and a shortbread biscuit.




Today’s prompt: shortbread, cannon, guru

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