I remember the old thread of story continuation using limited syllabyls.

Fiction-55 is an interesting concept of writing short stories with only 55 words. Brevity is the soul of wit indeed.

Here's a professional example:

" Marie,

You meant everything to me. I don't blame you, though. I always figured some day you'd realise how worthless I am.

Sorry about the mess; I just couldn't stand to live any longer. But you'll always be with me.


PS. The fish I served you tonight was poisoned. See you soon. "

My attempt:

" “Afraid?” I whispered. “No.” She said.

Hands and breath held tight, as we spiraled into space.

Yesterday was the last time we will set foot on ground.

Earth disappeared.

I never told her I love her. Now I have time.

She leaned on me, her conspiratory whisper tickling my ear.

“I am dying of Aids.” "

Looking forward to reading all your stories ;)
