I am always up for any sort of Word Challenge thingy and a commenter on my Saturday Snapshot posting [yesterday] alerted me to a word-challenge called Trifecta.
The commenter was one Libby Rodriguez.
Here's how this works.
The fine folks at Trifecta give you the beginning of an extremely brief short story [33 words] and you have to finish it in a mere 33 words. That's all you are allowed is 33 words. Then a winner is chosen by process of election -- umm, so if you think my 33 words are worthy of your vote, please follow the link provided and vote for me.
That would be so crazy if I won, because I don't even know what I'm doing here.
So, what follows is the prompting from Trifecta in bold print, followed by my 33-word conclusion, given in italics.
“There’s nothing cute about it,” he said. The register of his voice indicated decision more so than discussion.
She disagreed heartily and privately, staring past his head and out the window behind him.
Handing her the mirror he shook his shorn locks to the floor, throwing the towel in her face.
Only then did she admit the truth.
It was indeed, the worst haircut in history.
You [my dear readers] then go to Trifecta [<-- click on that link] scroll down to the links section on that page, read all the other submissions, realize that mine is the best one, and vote for me after 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time today [Sunday, the 25th].
And may the best submitter named Cipriano win!
