Last week I entered Vivian Kirkfield’s 50 precious words writing contest. The brief was to write a story for kids with a word count of 50 or fewer. As a picture book writer, I’m used to writing with limited word counts but this was a new challenge!
Below is my entry, ‘Love Will Always Win’.
As Freya watched the news unfolding
on her TV screen,
her tummy twisted, tears sprang out,
“Why’s everyone so mean?!”
“Look again,” said Dad,
“At all the helpers rushing in!
Though bad things sometimes happen…
…know that love will always win.”
