"Everything in the world exists in order to end up as a book." - Stéphane Mallarmé
Here's another fun writing challenge, this time from Vivian Kirkfield at Picture Books Help Kids Soar! I've included the challenge guidelines and my entry below. Head over to Vivian's blog to read more.
The challenge: "Write a story appropriate for kids ages 12 or under, using only 50 words…they can all be different words, or you can use some of them over and over…just as long as the total word count of the story is 50 or less."

No milk! Apple juice, peez.
No! I throw cup.
No, inside Mama.
No wash hands!
No, I spray. I dry.
No Mama! I read.
No, I throw toy.
No! Not up.
Yes Mama…hug and apple juice peez!
Clearly, my toddler inspired this one! And yes, she does throw toys, look me right in the eye, and ask oh-so-sweetly, "Mama happy?"
