Flash 55 - The Great American Novel

Bloodshed and tears shed, classic scenes of love and hate; prodigious, ponderous, belletristic locution that accentuates my literary adroitness and finesse; more than 560,000 words and 1,400 pages in paperback; selling more than 200 million copies; reaching number one on the New York Times Best Seller list; Pulitzer Prize for Fiction; a damn good yarn.



Write a story in 55 words.

  9. Great 55! I see your word count is right up there as well. I think I'll take my mid-term today, not because I want to but just to get it out of the way. ~ Calico Contemplations
