MAKE A WISH – #50preciouswords Writing Challenge 2019

It’s that time of year again! Here is my 1st of two entries for Vivian Kirkfield’s #50PreciousWords 2019 Writing Challenge!

This contest began in 2016, and this is my second year throwing my hat in the ring. The challenge was to write a complete story, appropriate for children (ages 12 and under), in 50 words or less.

I had a lot of fun participating in this challenge. Here’s my 1st of two entries. It is exactly 50 words (excluding title):

MAKE A WISH
By Charlotte Offsay
 
Look! A dandelion!
Pluck.
I wish I were a cat!
 
I climb.
I pounce.
I chase.
“MEEEOOOOWWWW!””
 
“Time for dinner!” calls Mama
“MEOW,” I cheer.
 
“Who are you?” She asks.
“MEOW!”
“Shoo,” says Mama.
 
“Mew,” I cry.
 
A dandelion!
PLUCK
I wish I were me.
 
“There you are!” says Mama.
