50 Word Story

Posted by terrepruitt on April 24, 2010

I have a friend who writes a blog.  She is an childhood neighbor of my husband but before meeting in person, I met her through her blog first.  But we actually have met in person a couple of times when she was in San Jose.  Anyway, she wrote a post about a 50 Word Story and I wrote a story as a comment on her blog.

My 50 word story was about dance.  It actually was written thinking of a new to Nia student.  I really like my story.  It is one of those thinks that I just like and I don’t really care if other people like it or not.  One of THOSE things.  It is on my desktop and I want to file it away, but I know if I do I will forget about it, so I thought that I could post it.  I thought that posting in today in honor of Bay Area National Dance Week would be fitting.

She walks shyly into class.  Afraid of what people she might see.  Unsure about dancing barefoot.
She removes her shoes. The music starts, sparking a fire in her soul.  She dances with pure joy.  She IS Joy.
She walks out with a sexy sway of her hips, shy no more.

I haven’t asked her so I hope she doesn’t mind me borrowing her idea of inviting my readers (most of who just read and don’t comment) to write their own 50 word story.  I would love to hear a story that you want to share of 50 words.
