Early Bird

Sometimes I get ahead of myself. This is one of those times, for, although it's still Thursday, I'm posting a 55 ready for the G-Man challenge tomorrow. You probably know the rules by now. You write a fifty five word offering, and tell Mr. Kowitall on his own Friday post, when it appears. He will then, like as not , come and kick you. I believe he shows sadistic tendencies, and rather wish he would choose to give out a few hugs instead, but Bloggers, it seems, have masochistic leanings and come to be kicked. No accounting for taste...

Not A Twitter Or Tweet

Diffused light surrounded me with a faint, pinkish glow. I struggled in the confined space to relieve my cramped limbs, but there was no relief. Incipient claustrophobia squeezed my mind and panic set my heart racing. I knew I had to break free - now! I struck out again and again... until, suddenly, CRACK!... I hatched!

Why don't you go away and write your own offering, then join the kicking circle? It really is perfectly painless, surprisingly enough.

  8. Now Jinksy...
    You need to go back and re-define what I do!
    I NEVER judge...I Praise!!!
    I'm always honoured to be privy to such creative talent.

  9. Very good, Jinksy. A complete story, with a plot and a resolution which is also a surprise. An imagination working in overdrive!

  10. G-Man - a little constructive criticism never hurt anyone. Undeserved praise, on the other hand can be far more damaging; it can lead to inflated egos!

    Doc - thanks for spotting beginning/middle/end. I did aim for completion.

  11. Buzzard -

    All this 55 egg laying is getting hard work. Do you want some brown paper and glue to paper over your cracks? I like to be helpful...

    (thought the world should see the email I sent you earlier, as I'd hate them to think I left you cracked...mostly because of our apparently similar origins !)

  17. For Jessie and Alicia -
    I guess I'm a cross between a dragon and a dinosaur - or possibly, a new kind of poet... (able to fly around the world!)

  18. Ahh that was so sweet! When you say 'kick' do you mean 'critique'? I enjoyed your 55 words very much.
    Thank you for your comments on my Blog recently.
    Blessings, Star

  20. Jinksy, you need have no fear of being kicked (and I apologize to your masochistic self for that) because this was excellent!

    My post is up here.

  21. Jinksy, well done! Being a person of extremes - either monosyllabic or garrulous, I find 55s quite taxing so don't often attempt them;-)

Curiosity Cats can leave a whisker here...but not before noting, please, that I choose to have an award free, tag free, meme free blog. But by all means, talk to me by email - I love to 'chat'...
