50 Precious Words Writing Contest

Taking a break from writing to enter this fun contest put on by Vivian Kirkfield. The rules are as follows:

  1. Write a story appropriate for kids ages 12 or under, using only 50 words…they can all be different words, or you can use some of them over and over…just as long as the total word count for the story is 50 or less.
  2. It can be prose, rhyme, free verse, silly or serious…whatever works for you.
  3. Title is not included in the word count.
  4. No illustration notes please.
I hope you enjoy my entry tentatively titled, "That's a Big Mouse!"

That's a Big Mouse!
(46 words)

This was the biggest mouse Henry had ever seen in his kitty life.
His rump wiggled and jiggled waiting to pounce.
He flew into the air and landed on his target.
“OUCH!” a familiar voice screamed.
It was his mother’s foot in a plush mouse slipper.
