Pirate Week at 50-Word Stories!

It's Pirate Week over at Tim Sevenhuysen's 50-Word Stories site!

All week long, he'll be posting submitted 50-word stories with a pirate theme -- probably about six or so throughout each day.

I've sent in a few myself, and the first one, "I Could Still Win, Ye Scurvy Wench!"  is up this morning!

For those not familiar with the site, each story is exactly fifty words long.  Not 49, not 51.  It's a fun way to create a snippet of story-telling. This week, I expect a generous portion of humor.

Pop on over and enjoy the treasure chest full of salty tales!  Your ratings, comments, and feedback are welcome and encouraged.

Arrrggh, me Mateys!

Ah, but will they be rated Arrrr?

Chris Fries said...

Ha!!! Could be, Matey!

I do know of one or two that could be rated "PU" for "Punny!"


Thanks for the laugh, Milo!

Congratulations on having your story up! :) That was a fun little piece.

Chris Fries said...

Thank you, Eagle -- I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Thanks for the link, Chris! Pirate Week was a ton of fun, and it was great to get your stories.

You're welcome Tim! I really enjoyed it, and was very impressed with the winning story -- I totally agreed with your choice of Abby. Her story was perfectly timed and awesome, and from a 7th grader!!! How cool!

Thanks again for a fun week!
