#50PreciousWords Entry

This is an annual contest run by the amazing Vivian Kirkfield. Head over to her site to check it out!  There’s a TON of amazing stories up so far. The contest is in honor of Dr. Seuss, and his accepting of a challenge, and writing Green Eggs and Ham with only 50 different words.  The twist to Vivian’s #50PreciousWords is that your word count has a MAXIMUM of 50 words. So, give it a shot! Just make every word count!

My entry came from a story that I wrote in 2014, but never really did much with.  I did have to cut out around 120 words, but I like where it finished. So, here it is:

Hunting Dragons

I’m bored. Woof.

Let’s pretend Duke’s a dragon!

Get the dragon!

Into the forest!

He soared over the swamp!

He flew up the mountain!

There he is!

He’s too strong!

Run!  Woof!

Down the mountain!

Through the swamp!

Into the castle!

Stand our ground!

Hurray!

Hunting dragons is hard!  Woof!
