DISCUSSION THREAD -- January 2024 -- 75 Word Writing Challenge

Only just seen the theme lol-this sounds really good-amazing choice of theme and genre :D I think I’ll do alright with the more creepy side of things… have written short (not 75-word short but still) books like that before. looking forward to seeing everyone’s work :)
 
Quick question-are poems excepted as work for the 75-word challenge?
Yes. They rarely seem to attract many votes though.
Ah, Christine, ye of few years treading Chrons passageways of yore. There have been poetic winners indeed. At first poems were discouraged (but never outlawed) because it was felt that a poem would be too powerful a medium with only 75 words. That proved to be false and there was a time you could almost certainly expect one to three a month.

@cyprus7 .... Untitled .... A story which really makes us think of a new kind of beginning.

@Perky .... My Ego .... A story which lifts up the truth that everyone (and we do mean everyone) has to make a start for themselves.

@johnnyjet .... Starter Switch .... Some new beginnings are harder than anyone else knows.
 
Sorry I’m here to be a bother again… lol im guessing (couldn’t find anything so sorry if there’s a direct answer already) that the 75 word challenge can have less than 75 words? Or am I wrong?
take pity on me I’m new

The 75 is maximum. You can use less if you wish. Also, if you're unsure on a hyphen, slang or made up term, you can always contact a moderator.
 
I'm in - I should say I worry myself at times... but nah, I'm very comfortable in my skin. Remember to vote for me at the end of the month or I might come for you next!

Yes, there is no lower limit to words. We once had a one word story. The theme was "The Seven Deadly Sins" and one wag wrote "Sloth" as his story.
 
@Bowler1 .... My First Headline(s) .... A story of cold and calculating plans for all things terrible.
 
I bet they did, but it wasn't a winner. Lust would have been a winner, Soth was just being clever.
