Today, I thought I would write another short story in exactly #fiftywords. This is not an entry for the current challenge by @miniature-tiger, if you like 50 word stories please check out his current challenge, you can also find my entry to the current challenge (my story is called "Brat!") here

She’s halfway across the rickety suspension bridge. He’s tempted to jump up and down. Just to shake things up a bit.

To provoke a reaction.

They haven’t spoken for hours. His fault. He accidentally said the thing he shouldn’t have said. He wants to apologise.

He just doesn’t know how.


You can read a follow up story written for zappl-fiction (in 240 characters including tags), which is written from her perspective: https://steemit.com/fiction/@felt.buzz/-just-say-it-an-original-work-of-follow-up-fiction-for-365daysofwriting-written-on-zappl-in-240characters-including-tags-but-not-including-this-very-long-title

A bit of weekend freewrite nonsense

Some HUGE news for me!

Another one of my steemit stories has been selected to appear in the Isle of Write Anthology!


“Haunted” is a ghost story (not that the title gave that away or anything) and it currently has 7 parts to it. But it isn’t finished yet. So I had better get on with it, hadn’t I…

It joins my 8 part story “Reunion” that was selected a few weeks ago.

Another cool short story. Well done.

Reminds me of Indiana Jones. There was a marathon over the weekend, Temple of Doom is great...the bridge reminds me of that scene from the movie.

Thanks again, write on!
