Another blogging challenge! I’m really loving how The Daily Post keeps giving us challenges that are sure to inspire creativity and imagination.
This time, I am writing a “fifty.” (My first!) This is my take on a new writing challenge hosted by blogger and awesome storyteller Vincent Mars of Boy with a Hat. His blog is wickedly cool (so is he, I think). To prove my point, you should really check out some of his best works by downloading his free e-book here. I’ve read only 12 of his fifties so far and after I finish this post, I’m going back to reading some more!
Anyway, here goes my very first attempt at writing a fifty:
“There was once a time I cared,” said the man as he tried to remember.
That was the time when he met her; his memories were all but scattered.
Eyes shut now, he breathed deeply; questioning all that happened.
Feelings he fought; he dared not care.
He had simply forgotten.
I don’t know if it’s good enough but it’s the best I can come up with at the moment.
