A 50-word story is a piece of fiction written in exactly 50 words. That doesn’t mean “roughly” 50 words; it doesn’t mean “as close to 50 words as possible”; it doesn’t mean 50 words or fewer. It means exactly 50 words. As with any other form of fiction, a 50-word story should have a beginning and an end, a plot and character development (even if they are only implied), and a theme, meaning, or purpose of some sort. Many 50-word stories are built around twists or climactic moments. No fanfiction. Please double-check the word count in a word processor before submitting.
The top 10 most upvoted stories will be reviewed, with 2 winning stories to be featured on the 50 Word Stories site. The most upvoted stories will also be mentioned on Commaful's social media pages.
