THIRTY-THREE WORD WEEKEND WRITING CHALLENGE TAKE 2


While driving up to the Mudlands today (muddy indeed, as little R discovered to her utter delight. ‘I like mud,’ she announced, squelching it between her toes), to revisit Howick and The Quarry with our overseas guest, I thought of another angle for a little horror tale. 

TRIFEXTRA: WEEK TEN – HORROR – Take 2

“Write a horror story in 33 words, without the words blood, scream, died, death, knife, gun, or kill. Good luck.”

REVERSE TRANSPOSITIONS

Powerless preventing
new rat body entering trap,
Bill feels muzzle touching bait;
inevitable ‘SNAP!’
Forthwith rat feigns illness,
giving time to strive
For education on just how
Bill’s limbs and brain to drive.

    Is that a magic number?

      That is the number which is traditionally set each week for the Triefextra Writing Challenge on Blogger. Whether their name and tricycle emblem comes from that, or vice versa, I don’t know.
