Sacha’s back with her #Writespiraton prompt.

This week your challenge is to write a 52-word story including these words:

Badger, amulet and coward

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.

Here goes!

A knock on the door.
Ernest peeked gingerly out of the window.
Oh, great!
Another mob had come to badger him, wanting his help. That was the third this week.
How long could he hide for?
He cursed himself for losing his precious amulet.
Without it, he was nothing but a coward.

    OMG. So, in reading “52 words”, I thought it sounded like a lot of words (it’s been a LONG time since 2,000 word papers in college) and I wondered who had time for that. Then, I read your story and felt like a tit. Great job, btw!

    A good response to this challenge, Ritu. I think those three words together, is a difficult one.
