A hard ten in craps.
Pair of fives.
An equilateral triangle.
Semiprime and a Fibonacci number.
5 times 11, my favorite digits.
(Being born on 11/22)
Perfect size for a complete and curious yarn.
The beauty isn’t only what you write…
But also what you don’t.
Tried to succinctly explain why I like this sub-genre of flash fiction so much.
55 Word stories are a convention, like Haiku.
In a chaotic world, it sometimes nice to have order.
I don’t have to remember how many words to write.
It’s always 55.
Of course, in time, I’ll be forced to make exceptions.
I promise to always let you know when I do.
