Writing 101, Day Five: Be Brief, “M is for”

“The Daily Post’s Writing 101, Day Five: Be Brief” challenges us to be succinct.

It instructs: “You discover a letter on a path that affects you deeply. Today, write about this encounter. And your twist? Be as succinct as possible.”

While no specific word counts were given, there were several suggestions including links to 100 word stories. I decided to take that challenge and write a story that is exactly 100 words. It’s not easy. I had to edit down from 189 words. I’m still not sure about some of it, but I’ll call it done for now. I’d love to hear what others think!

My story is here:
M is for

And just a laugh that this post on a 100-word story is longer than that at over 120!
