It had been miles since Kevin pricked his finger on the hollow-bone. Now, walking in circles, images of entrails, blankness, remnants of what was, clouded his mind as the woods devoured him whole.
I don’t know if I did this right. The instructions for Trifextra Week Fifty-six are:
- Use the 33rd page from Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge.
- Scour the page , choose 33 words.
- Reshape those words into a piece of your own.
- Your piece does not have to tell an entire story.
- Use whatever you need, whether or not it appears in the photos.
This is a great, complete story. Well done with the word limitation.
Thank you, the weekly practice is doing me good.
You did well … I feel sorry for poor Kevin, even in these few words.
Thank you Morgan.
Wow. Great piece.
Very nice. I caught the uncomfortable feeling. Congrats on the win before!
Hehe! Thanks Mr Pirate, much appreciated.
Great story, dark and magical.
The magic came through then? Good, I was worried about that.
Good one. Like Sleeping Beauty pricking her finger.. only much more ominous. Nice.
You will usually get dark and ominous from me; as I am starting to realise myself!
Oooh spooky magic stuff (: I like it!
I am happy it came across as I intended 🙂 Thanks for your comment Draug.
I think you did it ‘right’ 🙂 eerie – very well done.
Thank you 🙂
nicely done, Sandra. It was an interesting challenge and I think you did it justice.
Yes, this was a very interesting challenge, and original. I’m glad you liked my attempt.
Great job with the prompt. I love the magic here.
Thank you, the text chosen for this prompt was certainly inspiring.
Terrific imagery. Great choice of words.
Don’t want to be that guy, losing my mind in the woods. Great scene that you painted there in those 33 words. 🙂
Neither would I! Thanks for reading Cobbie.
A great story Sandra. A good take on the prompt.
Thanks a lot Mike, I really appreciate your comment 🙂
Wow!Poor Kevin-lost in the jungle,would hate to be in his shoes!Loved that he ,”pricked his finger on the hollow-bone”-reminded me of fairy tales & fantasy-wonderful job Sandra:-)
Thank you 😀
Haunting story, Sandra.
I do think many of your words were not in the text, though.
And, you are quite right. As I said, I don’t know if I did this right. There were too many instructions for my simple brain to follow!
