The Magical Fifty
So I was just going through a bunch of files on my computer and looking at which story next wanted attention. Now I’ve been writing in different forms for more than thirty years. I’ve written everything from a scratch sheets that are little more than ideas, to story boards for video productions, to bios for musos, to short stories, to novels, to a whole bunch of words that make no sense. (The later probably covers all my writings though 🙂 )
So in looking at said files I came to realise just how magical the number 50 is for me and was wondering if others had noticed the same thing or similar.
I’ve got the makings of four novels, all stopped at pages between 50 and 59. I’ve got ideas for stories I was hoping to build on which stop around the 50 word mark. I’ve got short stories that didn’t get past 50 words. I’ve got storyboards with 50 scenes, and there is 56 files in the writing folder.
Maybe I should stop counting 🙂
(edit) And maybe I should stop posting to the daily prompt since it appears I can’t post more than two a day before they stop showing up…..(edit 2) or maybe they do eventually and last weeks error was just a glitch someone fixed 🙂
