Misty Endings – Writing 101, Day 13: Play with word count

This story was originally over 100 words. I cut it down once for another site to 100 words and I just cut it down to a 50 word story.


Misty Endings

By Teresa Dean Smeigh

copyright November 2015

Heather can barely see through the fog. She stops, hides behind a tree and hears nothing. Maybe he has given up chasing her.

The tug on her ponytail pulls her head back exposing her throat. She looks into his face and has only a moment to realize it is over.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    Hope it’s just two kids playing hide and seek. 😦 refuse to go in the direction of the most obvious conclusion that comes to mind first!
