My friend Josh Mosey posted a 50 Word Challenge contest on his blog yesterday. I decided to give it try. Here’s my entry. It’s about one of the main characters in my novel.
Samuel flew alone. Their betrayal galled him. Though his skin matched a setting sun, all he saw was darkness.
After abandoning the ambush they’d never take him back. He should have acted faster.
Spell-casting, he conjured a hideout in the woods. Anger and blame were his only companions.
I encourage you to give this a try too. Can you compellingly, accurately, and succinctly describe a character in 50 words or less? It’s much harder than it sounds! (At least it was for me.) But it’s a lot of fun!
