55 - Who here can write?


“We’d heard you are a good writer and we would like you to write some content for our new web site,” said the marketing director.

“I’d love to,” replied the lowly salesman. “I have some great ideas about 2D bar code use. But tell me, do I have to limit my story to 55 words?”

Strange, where is everyone?

Now why wouldn't he want every writing to be a 55? I think it would make G-Man quite proud!

Mama Zen said...

Yes! Yes, you do!

Great work, Monkey Man!

Margaret said...

2D bar code use.... 55 words is probably TOO much on that subject :)

Janna said...

Hey, if it was Sunday he'd have to limit it to 160 characters.

55 words should seem like a novel!

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

Limits are sometimes good.

Brian Miller said...

55 is nice number though...

and hey if you can get it done in 55 why not...smiles

bunnygirl said...

Oh, dear. 2D bar code use sounds like such a dull topic that 55 words may be too many. Or am I overly pessimistic?

hedgewitch said...

Sometimes less is more, but maybe not in this case. Great 55, and glad to see some stupidity in the criminals in your neck of the woods. (The tv guy was bad, but 'heroin for sale' flyers??Come on people.)

Mijayami said...

Gosh, it seems everybody wants a 55 now! Nicely done :)

KB said...

Love it!

Lydia said...

Just great! That talk about codes reminds me of the stuff my husband talks about that I do not in any regard understand!

Jinksy said...

How apt! LOL

MorningAJ said...

More people SHOULD limit their web copy to 55 words. (Tell my boss, please!)

Maybe you. said...

poem: A man falls in love, the sharp and fierce cut of the blade, makes him follow her everlasting shade.
She has gone to another world, she vanished into the dark coal, without knowing the traps of obsession the man knew his life's goal.
Siver tears, tremor without fear or mix.
Oh will she ever exist.

ahmmm story: The day was gloomy in all of its aspects, although he didn't like it that much. He had a feeling that somehow the sun would finally break through the dark clowds and give him a jolt of life.

He lay down.
Melancholy seemed to fade, he felt the heat on the back of his neck.


Hope you like this shizz

Pheromone Girl said...

"Lowly sales guy" as opposed to what... overly coddled copy writer? I work with too many of those and they're all too self important to be concise on any subject. Seriously.
