The 2nd annual #50PRECIOUSWORDS Writing Challenge by Vivian Kirkfield

I’m so excited that it’s time for the 2nd writing challenge I’m participating in this year.

In honor of Dr. Seuss and his many contributions to children’s literature, Vivian Kirkfield challenges kidlit writers to create children’s stories using 50 words or less.

Here’s the first #50PRECIOUSWORDS story I’ve done. It’s a re-write of a short piece I wrote for a contest years ago. It’s stronger than it was before so I’m proud of that. Hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you think!


Awake, Onyx.

Spread your velvety wings for take-off.

Away we gooooo!

It’s time for your first hunt.



Tonight’s the best night for treats.

Rest well, Little One.

Our fun has made you sleepy.

This sacred eve is over.

Dawn is breaking.

Another Halloween has come and gone.
