Over at the India writing community is an interesting challenge.


"Fifty-fivers are a very strict subset of the flash writing family. All stories must be exactly 55 words long. No more, no less. No topic, theme or trigger. But there is one restriction. Every one of the fifty-five words in your story must start with the same letter."

And, here is mine... interested in writing one?

Academics and Apples

An apple attack aimed at an accustomed academic actually altered all activities afterwards. Absent animated accusations and any assumed anger after an accident attracted alternatively an answer about action and aftermath. An ambitious assessment and an advanced analysis admittedly.

Abraded apexes and apples are apt; an ananas arriving at apex alters aftereffects adversely after all.

This was far harder than I'd expected. Here you go:

"Balderdash!", bellows Boris, bravery bolstered by Bordeaux. "Beyond bad! Beware buffoons bearing banalities." Bystanders blush, bemoaning belligerence between brothers.

Bookish Bartleby blinks. "But betting begets bankruptcy, brother. Budget. Basically, be buoyant. Besides, Bess'll be back by bedtime, bringing bacon butties".

"Baritone baby bulk-buying baseless bullshit", blusters Boris, but buckles. Because.. bacon.

Decided to see if I could C:

'Can calamities connive?' cogitated Chris callowly concealed. Clamorous church choirs chorussed crisscross causing considerable chagrin. Commonsense commanded ceding casement's company. Covertly creeping, clearing clergymen climbing campaniles caused consternation. Can crimes committed cretinously court conviction? Capture, calumny, crucifixion... consequences!

Christ! Commander, caretaker, caregiver, cried Chris, clearing concealment - crashing, cursing. Confession called...

Only made it to 48 words - clearly causes concern. I don't think I'll do a D anytime soon.

Tempting, but no. I was going to do something on dancing dragons and deathmasks and end with "Disclaimer: don't do drugs.", but I'd better work instead :-)

"Ah!", acclamations abound.
Alliteration all around.
