Day 1: NaBloPoMo — “The End”

This is the first post for NaBloPoMo and it’s also my Trifextra: Week Ninety-Two challenge post.

In The Scorpio Races, author Maggie Stiefvater writes, “It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.”  Give us the next thirty-three words of this story, as you imagine it.  Take it wherever you like, but make it original and make it 33 words exactly.


Only one knows your end day and today is not it.  He will breath life into you and your soul will be satisfied.

No. Not today. But November first is someone’s end day.


This post was not only inspired by the Trifextra prompt, but also by a Christian concert I just got back from.  I had this written in my head before I got home.  I hope you enjoyed it .

Make sure to stop by NaBloPoMoYeah Write, or Rarasaur to show your support.
