Exhibit “A”

The Knife

On to the quick and dirty Trifextra.  This weekend we are assuming that many of you are slogging your way through leftovers and family bickering (or is that just us?) and thus we’re going way easy on you.  This weekend we are asking for a 33-word free write.  Give us whatever you’ve got.

The old man reclines on his sofa. His wife on the floor of the guestroom, killed by the same hand, with the same weapon, that is about to strike him, as he sleeps.

NaBloPoMo #30 (yea)!

Three Sisters


“I think he likes you Abia, a sister knows.”

“Quiet Nasra, you will spoil this transaction for your older sister.  Please tell me you will take care of our little sister Heela. Please!”

These 33 words form my entry into the Trifextra 95 challenge. We were asked to write a story containing a particular word three times. My chosen word was sister.

TriFextra Week 92

In The Scorpio Races, author Maggie Stiefvater writes, “It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.”  Give us the next thirty-three words of this story, as you imagine it.  Take it wherever you like, but make it original and make it 33 words exactly.

Overpopulation–The Human Population Crisis

“It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.”

“Our government has dictated this incomprehensible policy. The overpopulation problem is their number one concern for the future of our country. We were allowed two children. Our third child, David, was a mistake.”

Guess My Name

Trifextra Challenge #89

This week we’re asking for 33 of your own words inspired by this classic song by The Rolling Stones.

You may know me as “Mr. Joe Cool”.

Planted me, dried me, packaged me, and smoked me.

You were addicted to me, No?

Pleased to meet you

Hope you guessed my name.
