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.

  1. Hi Terre! My 50 word story is about dance, too! Before I start, I just want to say that limiting a story to 50 words is really a challenge!!! Here’s mine:

    I’ve always been a dancer at heart…I learned to dance before I could walk. I haven’t stopped since! If there’s music on, my body is moving whether it’s tapping my foot, dancing in my chair or simply dancing!!! Nia is my passion. I love teaching Nia!


  2. Hi Terre–thanks so much for commenting on my blog. I so look forward to hearing from you :). Sorry this last one was so difficult for you (“Where food goes to die”) hehe.

    Love your idea of a 50-word story. I will work on that and submit.

    Have a terrific (and healthful) night.

    Of course I don’t mind, Ms. Awesome! I love your story! I need to do one of those again…


    • Yay. Thanks, J. I really felt I should have asked first but I often write my blogs at the last minute (bad habit). Although I did start this months ago, then shelved it, then brought it out again (at the last minute).

      Thanks again!

    This was fun – and I commented on 3 other blogs that I read today…I think that is a record, thank you for your inspiration 🙂

    Outside my window I see rain falling, wet trees, and puddle jumping kids.
    They are roaming the yard looking for some rainy fun, kicking a ball or catching raindrops on their tongues.
    A spring rain shower on the coast in northern California. So much fun, I must go join in!


    • Yay. I am glad that you felt compelled (you “had” to ‘cuz we’re friends, right?) to comment on my blog. I am thinking once you did it . . . . that helped you move past that wall and now you can comment other places too, yes? I know that you had told me you have been reading some blogs for a long time and never commented so when you first commented on mine I was so happy and flattered. Thank you.

      AWESOME story! Thanks!
