“I’ll bet you $50 that you can’t write a book using only 50 words,” said Cerf. He knew that Seuss had used a whopping 225 words in The Cat in the Hat, which had recently been published, and he knew how Seuss had struggled with that one, so the $50 seemed like easy money. Yeah… easy money for Seuss!
Can you write a short story using only 50 words? You can use the same 50 words as many times as you need. Only use the same 50 words, not a 51st.
