I thought the title Fifty Shades Of me would be kind of fun to write about.
Now the fun part is trying to figure out how I am going to do this. Well, here we go.
50 (I meant) 14 Shades Of Me
- I’m not 50
- I will be 50 someday
- At 50 i plan to be fabulous
- At 60 I plan to be sensational
- At 70 I plan to be just Sensationally sexy
- At 80? What else? Insatiable
- At 90 I’ll need a break from all of my antics.
- I did not really care for the book 50 Shades of Gray (kind of cheesy the girl annoyed me by the middle of book 2)
- I didn’t bother with the movie
- I love my family
- i love my God
- I’m thankful for each new day
- I am working on my criminal justice degree (as well as psychology)
- In a nutshell, Just living each day one day at a time while being thankful for each blessed day I am thankful and grateful to see.

Today’s Assignment In Writing 101
In today’s post, pay attention to the total length of your post: if you usually write posts under 500 words, aim for longer. If you tend to write a lot, be succinct. For those who’d like to aim for a specific word count, here are ideas:
Write a 50-word story (or, if you feel daring, a series of 50-word stories). Get inspired by the tiny tales at 50-Word Stories.
Take a look at some 100-word stories at 100 Word Story, or this Reader’s Digest list of winning 100-Word True Stories, then take a stab at your own. Your first attempt at flash fiction? Your last vacation? A fleeting encounter at the grocery store?
Pick a previously published longer post you’d like to pare down. Keep it at 750 words or less, like the essays at Brevity, a site of concise creative nonfiction.
Want to go long? Expand on an existing post. Search your drafts that are thematically similar and see if you can merge parts of each. Or, combine two or more published posts into one longform piece, made up of multiple pages or sections divided by subheads or graphic elements.
