Ten Word Story Challenge

This is fun: https://esthernewtonblog.wordpress.com/2015/05/28/my-weekly-writing-challenge-53/

The challenge: Make a ten word story using the following five words!

  • Fedora
  • Patagonia
  • Pink
  • Melancholy
  • pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis (apparently the longest word in the dictionary and it means a lung disease caused by inhalation of very fine silica or quartz dust!)


oh, melancholic Pategonia,
take my Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.
leave my pink fedora


Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis killed Pategonia
a melancholy pink fedora floats


Melancholy in Pategonia
Pink fedora without
Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis within.


A pink melancholy sky
A fedora
Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis in disguise


In Pategonia my Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis hides beneath a melancholy pink fedora
