It's so simple. The only thing is the one thing. All the busy work and multi-tasking. They just distract you. So, be singularly focused on your one thing. Then you'll be one with everything you need. That's the secret. The hard part is recognizing the one thing. And having faith that it will deliver you.

A 55 word story describing the virtue of discovering your one thing. That thing that you will master.

It’s so simple.

The only thing is the one thing.

All the busy work and multi-tasking.

They just distract you.

So, be singularly focused on your one thing.

Then you’ll be one with everything you need.

That’s the secret.

The hard part is recognizing the one thing.

And having faith that it will deliver you.

55 word stories is my one thing. But you probably figured that out already.

Why 55?

Brainchild of New Times founder, Steve Moss 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.

This is a 55 word story explaining why I’m so fascinated by 55 word stories. A kind of meta exploration into the idea.

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.
