55 Words - June 9, 2011

This is my first try at the 55 Words Writing. So, please, be... patient. And thank you!

My 55 Words:

Okay, I need 55 words to say something. Don't want to mess this up! Nuts! I used a contraction. I think that's one word though. Hope so because I just used another one. Oh no - what about hyphenated words? Do they count as one or two? Better stick with the number 55 then till - oops!

To try one of your own, this is the man you need to see: Mr. KnowItAll.

  2. I'm smiling. So easy to be overthinking. ;_) My first one I counted the title...oops. Fortunately, I'm not too sure the Math Police are checking every entry for numerical correctness. Great 55.

    (PS Now I really cheat and use an online Word Counter--shhhhh...it's a secret.)

  7. Oh my...look at G-Man being all hard core and failing to acknowledge the humor. I don't worry about any of those things you bring up. I just let Microsoft Word do the counting.

  8. lol! This was fun! I remember when hedgewitch mentioned the title counting and I freaked because I never ever counted those :)

    Look forward to more of your 55s (contractions and hypenated words and all!~)

  17. You've encapsulated what most of us have felt at one time or another when Friday rolls around (or Thursday night) and we have no 55 ready. Nice first 55!


    P.S. - I use MS Word's word count function to check my 55s.
