This weekend, my second for participation, the Trifecta Writing Challenge has asked for a response with a limit of 33 words. Having the word restriction is absolutely amazing, even after only two weeks I feel like a am training my brain to think again, to love words again.
The challenge set on Friday was to complete the following story in only 33 words... The phone rang at 4am.
The phone rang at 4am.
A shrill, repetitive, definitive trial.
Freedom, held, suspended on a thread; love on a whisper. I witnessed indecision, comprehended inner conflict; pleaded, silently, for clemency.
Three words, hope soared unencumbered.
“I lost her.”
Why not join in yourselves if you feel like a challenge is just what you need... :) xx
