Short Story


A challenge:

Eee – no time!

I struggle,

O, for immutable vowels…

U-turn; re-write.

  1. Short and ever-so sweet.


  2. Alright, Ms. Shel Silverstein (or Ms. Ogden Nash–whichever you believe wrote Fleas: Adam Had’m), of the short short poem.


  3. A winner
    Exactly the right length for a post!
    I love you
    O’s and XXXX’s
    U are the best


  4. Ha ha this made me laugh and reflected exactly how I feel today….
    and um, on many days….



  5. You are speaking for many of us and giving us a smile in our despair.


    • Do you mean the despair of rewriting? I generally like the process, but I’m considering a rather major overhaul of one of my books. So, yes, maybe despair is the correct word though it wasn’t what I had in mind when I wrote this.


I would love to know what you think.
