Fiction in 50 July Challenge: The Path to Enlightenment…

fiction in 50

Welcome to the July session of Fiction in 50, where those with a passion for brevity pit their wits (and writing implements) against a prompt and a strict 50 word limit.  If you’d like to join in, the rules are simple:

1. Check out the prompt for the month

2. Create a piece of fiction in 50 words or less

3. Post it somewhere on the interwebs

4. Link it up to the linky in this post, or share the link in the comments

It’s that simple! But for a slightly more in-depth explanation of the challenge and to get the skinny on upcoming prompts, click on the large attractive button at the top of the post. New players are ALWAYS welcome! In fact, new players are encouraged because it gives us all some new blogs to stalk enjoy.

This month’s prompt is…

path to enlightenment

And here’s this month’s linky, which will remain open until the week prior to the August challenge:


Here’s my entry for the month. I have titled this piece…

An Attack of Wisdom

“It’s a Chihuahua.”

“Not just any Chihuahua. It’s been specially bred to detect spiritual giftedness in humans!”

“This is ridiculous. You people … OUCH!..It BIT me!”

Turning as one, the crowd began to chant:

“Embightened one! Embightened one!”

With the blossoming pain came clarity: I was a latent guru, unleashed!

I’ll just take a moment to appreciate the unintentional pun that occured with the last word of my efforts.  Right, moving on, now it’s your turn!  Link up, hop around, and enjoy the brilliantly brief writings of your fellow blog-wranglers!

Next month’s prompt will be…

last place you look
