My writing friend Vivian Kirkfield is hosting a 50 Precious Words Story contest. Since Dr. Seuss only used 50 unique words to write a story, Vivian is challenging writers to write a children's story using only 50 words. Since I love picture book biographies, I thought I'd try writing one using only 50 words.
I was in high school during Ronald Reagan's administration, and so hearing about Nancy Reagan's death made me sad. In honor of her, I wrote this tiny biography. Enjoy!
Lived a girl
Who loved to swim, dance, and act!
Theater led to Hollywood.
But Hollywood didn’t lead to fame.
She was accused of being a communist!
Seeking Ronald Reagan, actor, helper, and lover,
led to the White House, as first lady.
