Sweet Successes in Small Bites


Who would have thought I would have a 25 word story published! Well, I did! This is an interesting little publication that takes stories and poems of exactly 25 words! The title, not included in the word count, must be the name of a nail polish shade. Believe me, there are a gazillion colors out there, and some of them are quite interesting. OPI has the most creative nail polish shade names EVER. Go to their site online and you’ll see what I mean.

Some of the stories and poems on here are so creative. I never thought mine, my first submission, would be accepted. But I’ll take another publishing credit, whether for 25 words or 2500.

Here’s a link to the website:


Just scroll down until you find mine. It’s called “Flawless.”

    Oooh, congratulations! A story in 25 words in a difficult feat (or maybe I’m just too verbose), and I think the nail polish title idea is an excellent one. I might have to scroll through the site for some inspiration of my own. Great job, Joy! I love your story (she better get her butt down in that sewer, lol).

  4. What a fate for a white diamond! Ha! Great story. Blessings to you, Joyce…
