Hello Dear Readers! It’s time to get out the word shaker and shake out 33 words for this week’s 33-word Trifecta Writing Challenge. This time we are asked to “write the origin story to the superhero of your choice in exactly 33 words.”
That Tragic Extra P
Gobbling the third meal of the day faster than a speeding bullet by age 2.
More powerful than breakfast and lunch and dinner by 20!
Hello Dear Readers! It’s time for the Trifecta Writing challenge which is as follows:
This weekend we are bringing you back to class with a little refresher course on compound modifiers. We are talking about two words that combine together to describe something. Such as a well-rounded individual or a one-way street or a lightly-oiled pan. Here’s a fun Trifextra trick: conventionally, if the compound modifier comes BEFORE the word it modifies, it requires a hyphen and counts as one word. If it comes AFTER the noun, it doesn’t need a hyphen and counts as two. For example: The well-read woman had an extensive vocabulary. (7 words) The woman was well read and had an extensive vocabulary. (10 words)
. . . . Because it’s only 33 words, we’ll count using our eyeballs instead of our machines, counting each hyphenated modifier as one word. We encourage you to do so as well.
Hello Dear Readers! It’s time for this weekends 33-word Trifecta Writing challenge where challengers were asked to write 33 words containing an IDIOT therein . . . so naturally I thought immediately of my buddy, Al Gore, but then I realized I had read the prompt wrong. Ha ha!! Oops, my bad!!
Therefore, the following 33-word entry has been amended to contain an IDIOM therein:
Pickles the Snake
Pickles the snake was up in arms
Cause she had to work in a walk in
But Pickles the snake had to use her charms
In order to coax her pet croc in!
Until next time . . . I love you
P.S. This post is dedicated to the real-life Pickles, the pet snake of my Blogging Buddy, Bucky over at behindthemaskofabuse.
Hello Dear Readers and welcome to Saturday, where you aren’t reading this because you are outside enjoying the wonderful spring weather unless you’re inside at your computer reading this in which case * high five* !!
Hello Dear Readers! This weekend’s 33-word Trifecta Challenge is as follows:
The word lithium comes from the Greek word lithos, which means stone (http://chemistry.about.com/od/lithium/a/10-Lithium-Facts.htm). This weekend, we want you to give us a thirty-three response using the word stone as one of your thirty-three words. You can use any definition of the word that you’d like, but we are specifically looking for serious, well-conceived entries. This isn’t the weekend for light-hearted posts about the difficulty of posting before the linkz close, and we are not looking for hilarious commentary about your cats (THIS time). We want something serious and deep from you guys this weekend, because the sun is starting to shine a bit more, and we think we can handle it now. Take your time with it and give us your very best work.
