It was until I attempted it the other night, that I realized how extremely difficult it is to write a story with this kind of unimaginable word limit. I mean sure, you see it done practically everywhere — well, I do, anyway — and it looks simple. Just find an idea, and talk about it until the limit is up. It's harder than it looks! I'm pulling my hair out; stressing in this effort to complete a decent 500 word limited story. Personally — and I know it may not seem like it — I'm used to writing long — generally long, anyway — like, novel-sized stories. So, trying to pack all the necessary information into one tiny short, all while keeping my reader's interested is hard.
How does one do it? :/
Below I've provided the link to a story I just posted. If you'd like, take a gander. It's the perfect example of my 500-word-limited-story fail.
