So what kind of story can you write in less than 55 words? Any kind, really.
Do you?

"Go on!" his friends urge him. "Tell her how you feel. You never know. She may feel the same way about you too."

She pauses for a moment before replying. He looks familiar. "No", she decides finally.

The End

More tomorrow. So do come back!

You're getting there, RA. The problem is, you've set the bar very high with your usual work. How do you miniaturise a force of nature?

J. Alfred Prufrock: Ah! I should have started writing mediocre stories, so that these ones would have been appreciated? :) Hmmm...
