That Important Conversation

Blogging challenges

The other week, I accepted a challenge. Sammi Cox of Whispers and Echoes asked her readers to write a story in 100 words – neither more nor less. And yesterday she published my offering. Thanks, Sammi!

Whispers and Echoes

‘He just can’t do it any more. Miles he’d walk. Every day. Now he can hardly get to the end of the road. And food! He’s hardly eating. His digestive system seems to be shot. Just … don’t ask.’

‘Well he’s a pretty decent age you know. He’s done well. He’s not going to get any better. You might consider whether it’s time to put him out of his misery, before he really starts to suffer’.

‘To be honest, I’d been wondering myself. Just let me get used to the idea.’ said Rover, with a business-like flick of his tail.

  1. Fabulous!
    and with 100 words you’ve got something to work with. When I was in my first or second year at varsity we wrote 50 word stories in our creative writing class. Pfff … but the most difficult thing about it was that it was before computers and we wrote in columns to count the words and re-wrote and re-wrote.
