I would really like to know if the story and message played across to the reader in such few words. Any advice on how to potray the story in fewer words would be helpful.

The Nutcracker Performance

April 5, 2015

PROMPT: Countdown


Could you believe it took ten weeks to get here.

Each movement filled with excruciating pain in my toes.

Memories of living in Tchaikovsky's music and dance.

Pain is beauty and beauty is ballet.

They would say this to encourage.

But did it really help?

Performance is what matters.

Seconds of pirouettes.

Nothing more.
