50 Word Thursday #11

50 Word Thursdays

The rules

1 The completed piece must be in multiples of 50 words – a 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 50WordThurs so I can do a summary.

As you may be aware, I have taken over hosting this challenge that Deb Whittam used to host but decided to move on to new things. I am now co-hosting this competition, taking it in turns with Teresa, The Haunted Wordsmith. Last week was her turn, click the link below to see her challenge, and check out the links to the entries.



So here is the picture for this week:

P1040365 - Copy

And here are the words:

The rigid formality of the place suffocated her – Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray. 


I hope you enjoy this weeks Challenge.

On Wednesday I will post the results and I pledge to include a link to every entry.

Have fun 😉

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

    1. The story (or poem, or anecdote) has to be either 50 words, 100 words, 150 words, 200 words or 250 words.
      50 words minimum then in 50 word increments up to a maximum of 250.
      Give it a try and see how you get on. When I first started doing it, I found it so hard to trim it down to 250 words, having an exact limit means you have to be very good at editing. 🙂
