So I'm taking a fiction writing class, and our prof mentioned that sometimes writing groups try the challenge of the 55-word short story. The idea is to write a complete short story in 55 words or less. It seemed to me, in addition to the other cool things that go up here, like an interesting idea.

Here's my first shot:

I said, “It’s like two friends on a sinking submarine. When the water reaches the ceiling they’re not friends anymore. Then it’s all about air, and they claw each other’s faces with their wanting it.”

She said, “Yes, it is sort of like that.”

That was pretty much the end. Except one last fuck later.
