Make sure that your 55 word fiction adheres to form.
55 words must form the ten sentences in order.
The first sentence is exactly ten words long.
Each following sentence is one word shorter.
The last will contain one word.
This could seem quite difficult.
In fact, it isn't.
It demands efficiency.
It's simple.
