#Fi50: Oops!

Fiction in 50 is a regular feature in the last week of every month and I invite any interested composers of mini-narrative to join in!

What is #Fi50? In the words of founder Bruce Gargoyle, "Fiction in 50: think of it as the anti-NaNoWriMo experience!" Pack a beginning, middle and end of story into 50 words or less (bonus points for hitting exactly 50 words). Then click the link in the image above and add your post, or add a link in the comments below. Check out some of the other offerings, and join the fun! You can post any time during the week, or the whole month--prompts are available on the Fi50 page through the end of the year.


“Festering rat-dung!”
“What’s the matter?”
“Uh, my hand slipped.”
“Yeah, maybe. What does blood do to these circuits?”
“I have no idea. Test routine one.”
“Controls respond.”
“Air quality okay. You need a bandage.”
“I’m getting some odd readings.”
“Yeah. I hope your insurance is paid up.”

  1. Mine's here.

    If we all comment with the link of the month on your post of the month it would be easier than wondering whether to go here or to the permanent page... Just saying!


We want to hear from you! Tell us your reactions, or whatever's on your mind.
