  Vivian Kirkfield https://viviankirkfield.com/2016/03/04/ppbf-brave-girl-plus-50-precious-words-contest/ has a contest on her blog!  This lovely, helpful writer is asking for stories of no more than 50 words, in honor of Dr. Seuss. He was challenged to use no more than 50 different words and he came up with Green Eggs and Ham.  This contest calls for 50 words in total.  Here's my entry, 50 words:
 
 
The Lonely Egg
by Deborah Holt Williams
 
Jackrabbit found the egg under the cactus.
"It looks so lonely!" he thought.
"I'll protect it."
Along came a rattlesnake!
"Stay away!"
The snake came closer.
"Leave this egg alone!"
The snake came closer.
Then--crack! Out came a baby...
rattlesnake!
"Thanksss for keeping my baby sssafe!"
said mama snake.
