50 word Writers Challenge

A few weeks ago, Granny Sue posted about a writers challenge where you had to write a story in exactly 50 words, no more, no less. I thought I'd give it a try. Here's my attempt at it:

“Fetch me that least skillet,” Granny said. Nothing made me happier than when Granny made biscuits. I watched with wonderment as Granny expertly worked the dough and placed the cut out biscuits into the little skillet. “You learn by watching,” Granny stated. “Think maybe you can make these next time?”

Neat, Matthew! I like it. It's like a snapshot of a moment in an old-time kitchen.

On Friday, try writing a 55-word piece for Mr. Know-it-All's Flash 55 Friday. It's fun!

Shirley Stewart Burns, Ph.D. said...

Okay, now the next chapter, please! :-)

Tipper said...

Great job! I'm with Shirley-I want to hear more.

Jason Burns said...

Old time! Ha! That scene took place probably in 1986 or so... LOL!

Janet, said...

Good writing! Did you ever learn how to do it yourself?

Matthew Burns said...


As a matter of fact, yes, I did learn how to make biscuits. I'm a fairly decent cook, having learned by just watching. Made some just yesterday to eat with some fresh honey I bought at the farmers market.
