Trifextra: #60: WORD HEIST


The Scriptorium had been an easy mark.  At the subway, the sack broke, sending words cascading down the stairs to the platform.  People helped. A tiny girl brought three over, in cupped hands… Remember,  Rain, Rebellion.


My Triextra entry this week… 33 words + 3 more… Rain, Rebellion and Remember.

  2. How extremely imaginative you have been with this take Ted – this is wonderful…letters spilling…. being handed back to be placed in the challenge.

  5. Oh my goodness, how beautifully whimsical!

  6. Okay…this is way too cool. I found myself picturing the whole scene as obscure as it would be. And the child picking up the words. Perfect.

    A sack of words is a priceless image, Ted! I love it, absolutely! But, what I really want to know is if the little girl took those three words and used them to create a Trifextra submission of her own? Hmmmm! 🙂

  8. I like what you did with the three words. Nice scene.

  9. Great idea and fun story. I think you found the formula to kill any prompt.

  11. I like the idea of words tumbling down stairs. Nice.
