I’m loving being a part of the children’s writing community and taking part in fun contests like this latest one from Vivian Kirkfield.
Write a story appropriate for kids ages 12 or under, with a beginning, middle, and an end, using only 50 words. The title is not included in the word count.
Cyclone Winnie, by Christine Evans
Winnie was named after a cyclone.
She twirled everywhere.
“Winnie, you make us dizzy!”
But, at the baton twirling contest…
Her whirls fell flat.
Her twizzles fizzled.
Her twists flopped.
Winnie pirouetted, spiralled, and…
…twirled onto the winner’s podium.
“Winnie is the Champion!”
