What writer doesn’t like a challenge? In honor of Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, fellow author Vivian Kirkfield (SWEET DREAMS, SARAH; Creston Books, 2017) is sponsoring a 50 Precious Words Contest. Everyone adores his gift for storytelling and word choice. The challenge is to write a story using only 50 words. See this post on her blog, Picture Books Help Kids Soar, for more details. And yes, there are prizes.
I wrote LOVE HUGS, a 49 word story. Hope you enjoy!

Would you like a hug goodnight?
Not tonight, I’m alright.
Would you like one when you’re sad?
Not when sad. Not when mad.
Would you like one for good-bye?
Not for good-bye. Not if I cry.
Would you stop me if I do?
Not at all, I’d like two!
