Trifextra: Week Fifty-Six … Bizzy Lizzy

February 23, 2013

A word game from Trifecta, choose 33 words from page 33 of  Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Stroud.  and reshape those words into a piece of your own.  Your piece does not have to tell an entire story

page 33

The incoming tide lapping at the water’s edge.  
The sailboat waited, for the woman with the child wrapped in a blanket. Who had hung the impatiens and wild violets by the front door?

      Thank you… it is very strange that just a few words can move a little community and communication I am touched. _/\_ xx

    Well-constructed little scene you have created out of those 33 words. Nothing to indicate that this is sinister in nature, maybe just a family friend having dropped by earlier while they were out? Who knows? That’s the beauty of a well-written mystery. Good job!

    Nice, bucolic scene.
    Where was ‘incoming’, though?

      Oh oops(perhaps I wanted it to be there) with, your eagle eye you should be a librarian. I am not going to check, at first I didn’t understand your comment and was gong to reply with a mysterious retort. So slightly embarrassed I say thanks for feedback., but more important the visit that was very nice! 🙂
