#Fi50: Make a Note

fiction in 50   imageFiction in 50 NEW BUTTON

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). I post a theme for each month's Fi50 here.

The rules for participation are simple:

1. Create a piece of fictional writing in 50 words or less.
That’s it!  But for those who wish to challenge themselves further, here’s an additional rule:

2. Post your piece of flash fiction on your blog or (for those poor blog-less souls) add it as a comment on the Ninja Librarian’s post for everyone to enjoy. 
And for those thrill-seekers who really like to go the extra mile (ie: perfectionists):

3. Add the nifty little picture above to your post (credit for which goes entirely to ideflex over at or create your own Fi50 meme pic….
4. Link back here so others can jump on the mini-fic bandwagon.
I'm playing with my posting dates, but somewhere in the second half of the month. 
This was supposed to have gone up Sunday morning, but I slipped. This one's kind in in honor of the women making news by standing up and saying "no more."

Make a Note

“Candy, come take a memo!” The boss patted the sofa next to him. Candace shook her head.

“You do need this job, don’t you?” She sat. 

“Why did you wear such a high-necked blouse?” He reached for the top button and she stood, video camera rolling.

“I took a memo.”

  1. Getting confused with the change-around....

    1. You and me both. I think I should just go back to the last Sunday of the month and try to stay on top of it.
