This hundred word story, One Damn Dollar, has a great message of hope and charity coming from others. Helping, when in need oneself, is a true sign of a pure heart.

Hi JoAnn. Congrats on your contest win with this great 100 word story. This story really emphasizes that it is far better to give than to receive, and that helping others can make a person feel good. It's not easy to write a whole story in a mere 100 words, but your story speaks volumes, your closing line packs a powerful punch, and your story delivers a great message for your reader. Grrreat job on this! ~ ~ Connie

I missed this contest, but I thought you did a great job. Congrats on your win! I found one nit.

"How much ya need boy?"--Suggest comma before boy.

Take care,
Russell

Good story. Touching. I could picture the homeless man's plight and the boy wanting a flower for his mom - not easy to do in 100 words. Good luck in the contest.

No wonder you are winning this contest as I think yours is the only story which ends naturally at word 'Hundred'. It doesn't look forced. And there is a beautiful message in there. Thank you for entering, best of luck for the contest.

This is really a very interesting story for something that can be related to the reader in only 100 words. The image works perfectly with the storyline. Good luck in the contest.

This is lovely. It's not only well-told, it is inspiring and original. And it made looking on the bright side seem easy, which it isn't.

I love the images in my head from your words. Lovely.

Made me smile. Good old-fashioned heartwarming story. We could use more kindness and selflessness these days, when the opposites is more widespread. :)

You definitely met the requirements, right down to the last one hundred.
It's pulled on the heart strings as we think of the homeless.
Then a child's heart is broken and he finds a hero.
Beautifully told.

This work has reached the exceptional level

thank you for sharing your entry in the one hundred contest. Within the scant one hundred words, you have managed to build a main character, make us aware of his situation, and solve the problem.

This is a well written piece and I wish you well in the contest,

~patty~
