50 Precious Words Contest


In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday, Vivian Kirkfield is hosting --

THE 2nd ANNUAL #50PRECIOUSWORDS WRITING CHALLENGE!

The rules are to write a story for children using 50 words or less. You still have time to enter!

Here's my story . . . I hope it makes you smile, and remember that when life gets tough, keep breathing!

JUST BREATHE

49 words

“Uggggh!” shouted Ella at breakfast.

She squeezed her eyes, scrunched her mouth, and clenched her fists.

“Just breathe,” said big sister Lily.

“I can’t.”

“Try.”

“No.”

“In, two, three, four,” said Lily. “Out, two, three, four.”

“Maybe,” said Ella, opening one eye.

She breathed.

Smiled.

Clapped.

And hugged Lily.
