Starting on January 1st 2013, my challenge is to write a story of exactly fifty words every day for a year. I am a single mother of two and a full-time teacher, so it won’t always be easy, but writing is what keeps me sane. The stories may be short, but my aim is to ensure that they always pack a punch. And with only fifty words to play with, every single one of them must be there for good reason.

My name is Amanda Law, it’s very nice to make your acquaintance.

      Thanks, Anne, I really appreciate your gesture. I have to admit, I’ve been struggling to know how to answer the questions in only fifty words, otherwise I’d be more than happy to to do so. Thanks again for highlighting my blog though.

      Ah yes, you’re right. The problem is, I couldn’t possibly answer all the questions in only fifty words. I’ll give it some thought though, in case I can come up with a solution. Thanks again, you’re very kind.
