Trifectra has two challenges each week – usually, they are one during the week with 333 words, and one during the weekend with 33 words they call Trifextra. The Trifextra challenge this time is:
This weekend we are challenging you to write 33 of your own words to build upon the following:
On the count of three…You can choose to include those words if you want, but they do not count toward the 33 words of your own.
On the count of three
We will surface for air
Into the wide open skies
Watching the sun
During our time aloft
Then sinking back
Into our homes
In the vast and open sea
Hey, what do you know! I finished third for the week with this entry! Cool, right? So link to the other two and spread the love. Here’s what they said:
Nice work, Trifectans, adding to the 33 words that were given to you. First place this weekend goes to former Trifecta editor, David at Puffery & Taradiddle for his piece, Anti-Climax. Pillow talk does nothing for the ladies at the helm of Trifecta. Literary references, however, make us swoon.
“On the count of three!” she cried.
I’ll be honest, it surprised me. I’m no Lothario, but I’ve had my share of pillow talk. Being ‘counted in’, though, was certainly a first.
And it quite spoiled the moment.Coming in second was Whimsygizmo for her piece, On the count of three…(Ro.Sham.Bo.) Read it out loud for maximum enjoyment. It’s pretty incredible what she’s done here.
Rounding out the top three is Edward Hotspur whose beautiful descriptions about knocked us off our feet.
Thanks again to Trifecta.
