Trifextra 48: Excluded

“I feel I’m able to get rid of any demons lurking in my psyche through my writing, which leaves me free to create all of this and to enjoy our family life, stepping away from all the fictional traumas and the dramas. If I write about family in crisis, then I won’t have to live through it, I guess.”
– Jodi Picoult

This weekend we’re asking for 33 of your own words that exorcise a demon. One of your own, or one from your imagination. Let it bleed on the page.

 

I’ve never included childhood bullies (even as zombunny fodder). They would attain ‘immortality’; the creativity I have gained through introversion is victory enough. Besides… there are things even an undead bunny won’t eat.

Trifextra 33 – Three Tines

This weekend’s challenge is:

The Rule of Three is a writing principle that asserts that, in writing, groups of three have the most impact. This week’s challenge is to write 33 words using the Rule of Three somewhere among them. It is up to you to interpret the rule, just make sure to use exactly 33 words.

I thought about this and while reading the Wikipedia article, noticed there were stories/tales with 3 characters used as examples. So I thought up my own fantabulous trio that you may notice from time to time. I present to your voting selfs – “A Tale of Three Forks”.

Skinny fork claimed, “salads start every meal perfectly.”
Heavy fork bragged, “I’m the main attraction!”
Dainty fork boasted, “I’ll satisfy every sweet tooth.”

Spoon, Plate & Knife agreed – “Get the forks outta here!”
