Our favorite time of year is around the corner again!
A time when we can relax and have fun.
You know we’ll be hitting the beach soon.
Ice cream every day is a must.
School’s out for the season too!
Vacation time is finally here!
Sunny skies every day?
Best season ever!
This piece is based on What If? Exercise 93: “Ten to One”. The exercise is to write a 55-word story in which the first sentence has ten words, the second has nine, etc., until the last sentence has only one word. The objective is to show that precision and thrift in writing can produce surprisingly powerful results. I hope you enjoy what I’ve written. Thanks for reading!
