My eldest son, 15, was inspired by the idea of a 50 word story, based off yesterday’s flash fiction. His is less diary, more driven by the word count. He sent me this last night, and I have to say, I’m impressed…but then, perhaps ’tis just a father’s pride. His story:
50 times. 100 divided by two. Square root of 2500. What to do?
I run as fast as I can, touch the 50th button.
I flew 50 floors up, down, around the room. Where is X?
“Jaden, wake up! What does X equal ?” asked Ms. L.
“50!” I say.
