#Fi50: Fiction in 50 Blog Hop

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 add a link to your post 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. I will be adding more for 2018 soon, so please make some suggestions to help me out! 

The November prompt is

The Worst that Could Happen

I took the controls with a giant grin. Finally allowed to solo! 

I did all the rituals the old flyers insisted on with my tongue in my cheek: kissed the ground, all that. I had this. What could go wrong? 

I hit the power button and went to find out.


Now write your 50-word story and drop a link in the comments!

  1. Oh gosh! I hope it all went well!
    Here's mine:

    1. I guess this could have been a training-school incident for the guys :) Nothing as bad as what might happen to Pete and Lars in your story, though.

  2. With little more than my wits and my wills, I crossed the threshold. I moved through the house, and so did it. It rounded the corner, as I climbed the stairs. If only I hadn’t chosen the corner to the landing. Who knows if the police ever found the body.

    1. All right! I hadn't thought about popping the whole story in here, but that works too!

  3. If that had been me writing that, I would have ended it on something going wrong because I am evil like that.

    1. Ah, but I'm more evil: I leave it to the reader to decide.
