Chagrin in Silk …….. (Weekly Writing Challenge: Fifty Words Max.)

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????The dermatologist worked for weeks to clear up the not so bad, but embarrassing acne.  It would not do, to not put her best face forward at the party.

She arrived in a beautiful blouse with three eye-catching cutouts in the back, a perfect frame for the spectacular fiery pimple.


A short creative writing challenge to write a story in exactly 50 words. This one is a mostly true nightmare that I’d witnessed.  Seemed metaphorical for all kinds of teachable moments. 😉


About Blog Woman!!!

Once in a while I can rock a thought. I simply believe in what I stand up for. I'd most like people to know that surviving the trials of mountains and monsters is more than resilience - it’s a path to your destiny. On a mostly weekly basis I throw out a grab-bag of facts, ideas or creativity; like a box of chocolates wrapped in ribbons of occasional profanity.... In other words, it's my party I can fun if I want to. So, waddya say, can we talk?

    Oh bless her heart.
    Nicely done, Robyn, it’s not easy to tell a story in 50 words!


    • Ha ha ha and thanks Christy. When I saw the challenge, for whatever reason, that particular moment from a party appeared. I remember being particularly fascinated.
      Anyway, this was fun and I’m really surprising myself lately! I can see why you were wondering about stepping off of your regular writing path and sorting that with new pen adventures. What can we do? Experience doth beget further experiences.

        Ain’t that the truth? I even jumped into the 50 word fun on Saturday. Feel free to check it out if you get time. I’m pretty sure, aside from the odd haiku, it’s the shortest piece I’ve ever written. Brevity is not one of my strengths. 🙂

    Beautiful work, Robyn.
    By the way, I would love to take you up on that introduction now. I figure this is as good a time as any, right?
