This week's writing challenge from
Five Sentence Fiction
( Lillie McFerrin Writes ) is based upon the prompt:
What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie posts one word for inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.
A pun a day keeps the editor at bay...
"I'm sorry, Debbie," said the teacher to the young student, "but I don't understand the story you wrote for your homework assignment. Why was your cat mad?"
The child looked up at the teacher, her eyes squinting, and replied, "My cat wasn't mad."
"But you said he was furious—which I must admit, is a very, very big word for a child your age."
"Well, he's very, very hairy!"
Sorry... so terribly sorry...
Sentences: 5 (of course! ...via the liberal use of the em dash.)
Words per sentence: 13.8
