99 words, no more, no less. It’s a simple constraint, an easy-to-master literary art form, and a powerful writing tool for creatives and entrepreneurs. Writers calibrate the usefulness and beauty of 99-words through weekly flash fiction challenges.

April 2, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story that includes pizza. It can be an original pizza pie (or slice) or something pizza-like. Go where the prompt leads!

No food in the shops

The cupboards are bare

My children are hungry

There is nothing to share

My stomach is rumbling

I try racking my brains

What on earth can we do while

All our energy drains?

A meat pie sounds great

A roast dinner would be better

I am being haunted by food

buttered toast would be kind

but pizza would be good

I can see it now, my mouth waters

I can smell the delicious aroma

of tomato, ham and cheese

A joy to my heart, my stomach too

Will someone bring me a pizza please?
