The short short short story challenge


yeah write!

I came across the AWC's mini competition to celebrate the shortest day of the year and thought I must try this! Picture books are all about the economy of words. So writing a short short short story in 21 words sounds like the perfect challenge. I accept!


This was my entry:

5:55am. Patience is getting short. 5:54am. Wait. What?! Wipes drool. 5:53am. The day is in reverse! She gets a second chance!
