The challenge is to blog every other day June 17 through June 30, using the theme or prompts as inspiration.
The theme is seven, so I’m posting a series of seven stories at seventy-seven words each. Each day also has a prompt based on a famous book title, and while I’ve unfortunately never read any of the books listed, I think I can work with the funny play on words.
Today’s prompt is: Life of Pie
So I hope you enjoyed this quick short-short, and be sure to come back on Wednesday for the continuation!
