#writespiration: Defeat

It’s a while since I’ve even seen Sacha’s #writespiration post. Love the photo. Here’s the story of what happened next in 52 words.


The drummer boy picked himself up and stumbled for the shore. A storm was brewing, but he still hoped the ships would be back for the remnants of the army. As he watched, the silence was broken by a sharp cry. He turned. The flash of the report exploded the bright moonlight.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. Yes, your right.
        A question: Do you know any book, made by short stories, or even Microfiction. My stories, for example, contains mostly cartoons and simple animations? 😐

      2. Not really. There are whole graphic novels but I can’t think of anyone who does short snippets like yours. That doesn’t mean you can’t be the first to do it though!
