Recently I entered a contest to write a short story in only fifty words. These were my entries.
A Kindred Soul
I sat down at the keyboard to try to write my fifty
word story, but no ideas came. Outside the window,
a crow chewed away at a garbage bag, searching
through it, hoping, like myself, to find some
useable scraps in the rubbish that other people
think of as worthless.
