Autopilot – 25 word story

Brookville, Pennsylvania

Autopilot Eon after eon, dazzling stars and nebula drifted past the ship’s viewscreens. The computer knew that the crew – if still alive – would have enjoyed them. # Recently, I’ve been going through my old writing notebooks looking for lost gems. This story was a writing exercise seeing what you could do with only twenty-five words.

It's a good one. I've never written a 25 word story, but I might give it a try.

It's definitely a gem. Glad you found it. Don't you just love it when you find stuff you're written years ago. Sometimes when I read the stuff I find I can't believe I wrote it! Sometime my writing moods come and then the inspiration goes in a flash. So happy it was written down before I forgot it.

I like that, and what a good idea. I like the concept of trying to fit a story into the most economical of formats. Great job.

That's a great exercise to get you to think of the importance of every word and how to move a story forward. I should try it.
