55 Fiction Fridays

Something I've enjoyed on Neel Mehta's blog, and am considering implementing ici.

First attempt:

"But, M-o-o-o-o-m….” The child’s high-pitch whine was the most effective form of birth control he’d ever heard. 23-Across, japanese sash. Would crossword makers ever tire of “obi”? The rank smell of D.C. public transportation in August distracted him from the paper. Aren’t you glad you use Dial, indeed.

That did it – he’d buy a car.

Welcome to the fold. The more you do it, the easier it gets. Just try not to fall into lazy writing habits like I have.

DC in August -- a little personal, no?
