I recently blogged about my friend, Vivian Kirkfield’s 50 Precious Words Contest. To recap, the rules are to write a story in 50 words flat for kids ages 12 or under. It can be prose, rhyme, free verse, silly or serious, and the title doesn’t count toward the word count. You can find the contest details here at Vivian’s blog.
After writing my entry, I challenged myself to write another 50-word story and another and another. Choosing which one to enter was a decision I put in my 10-year-old daughter’s lap. Being rather diplomatic for her years, she hugged me and claimed they were all good. But one of them made her laugh, and that is the one I am entering.
Here is my 50-word story in the form of a letter to the Easter bunny.
