#50PreciousWords – 2017 Edition

The lovely and talented Vivian Kirkfield has challenged us kidlit writers to write a complete story using just 50 words.  #50PreciousWords was inspired by Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham, which only contains 50 unique words!  To find out more about this fun contest, check out Vivian’s website and follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #50PreciousWords.  My entry was inspired by my love of sweets.  I hope you like it!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year 

They’re here! They’re finally here!

I think I’ll have a few.

CRUNCH! CRUNCH!

Chocolaty, minty goodness.

Maybe just one more.

MUNCH!

Caramel and coconut perfection.

Oh, that’s not enough.

CRUNCH! MUNCH! CRUNCH!

Peanut buttery swirls.

I can’t stop!

MUNCH! CRUNCH!

Sigh.

Later…

Mom, where are all the Girl Scout cookies?

    Jenna – this is adorable! I think lots of readers will be able to relate to this story! Too bad my daughter isn’t in Girl Scouts anymore!!

      Thanks, Melissa! Not only is my daughter in Girl Scouts, I’m the troop leader. We are picking up our cookies on Sunday, so I have Thin Mints on the brain. 🙂
