Hello, I’m Andrew Joyce.
I was here a few months ago and issued a 79-word challenge.
I asked you to write a 79-word story with plot, character development, and all the stuff good stories are made of.
And I must admit that you all came through with flying colors.
Because you were all so damn smart, I’m back with a new challenge.
This time it has to be exactly 27 words not counting the title.
You must tell a story bringing Facebook into it—at least tangentially.
Give it pathos.
Give me Gone with the Wind in 27 words.
This time there is a grand prize.
The winner will get an all-expenses paid weekend with the famous Danny the Dog.*
Infuse your stories with your soul.
Make us laugh.
Make us want to hang our heads and cry at your angst.
Here’s a sample entry:
Are my posts on Facebook commented on?
Are they liked?
If not, then I have no self-worth. I used to have self-worth.
But that was before Facebook.
*By “all-expenses paid,” I mean that the winner will have to pay Danny’s expenses to get to his or her location and return him back home to me.
And please take note that Danny flies only first class and stays in five star hotels.
But on the plus side you’ll have Danny for two full days, with him telling you how wonderful he is.
NOTE: PUT YOUR ENTRIES IN THE COMMENTS BOX BELOW, SO DANNY CAN PICK THE LUCKY WINNER
