the doctor

“Rose called for a doctor who can save us.”

“Who is this doctor and how can he save us from this?”

“He’s seen it many times. She calls him the doctor.”

Doctor Who?”


This week’s Trifextra prompt was inspired by the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.  For this prompt we had to write 33 words and choose one word that would repeat three times.  It could only be a verb, noun , or adjective and it could not change in form.

I hope you enjoyed my little tribute.

When young Nyla asked the gods of Good and Bad, “Why is it hard to choose between you?

They replied in unison,  “Because it’s better to choose good or bad and not Indifference.”

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 .

This weeks Trifextra prompt is based on a quote from Katherine Paterson, author of Bridge to Terabithia. She wrote, “It’s like the smarter you are, the more things can scare you.”  We are looking for a 33-word explanation of what scares you (or your character).  We already know you’re intelligent, so, according to Paterson, you should have no shortage of potential subject matter.

I hope you enjoy!  And as usual, please make sure you stop by and read what others have written and of course you’re welcome to join in the writing fun.

This week’s Trifextra is Community judged, so make sure to take a moment to vote, too.


She’s terrified of them.  She was never stabbed with one.  Never used one.  Never even picked one up.

Week after week I ask, “Why?”

She shrugs and says, “I’m just terrified of pens.”

Three Men and a . . .

The minxes over at Trifecta have come up with an interesting challenge.  For this challenge they have given us the 99th page of the Oxford English dictionary and have asked that we choose a word and any definition and write a story consisting of 99 words.

Here is my take on the prompt.  I hope you enjoy and please make sure to stop by and read everyone else’s stories.

This week is community judged, so make sure you vote.


“Another Bacardi shot for my pal,” Jake said.  “It’s his last weekend as a free man.”

“Guys, I really should go,” AJ said.

“Have a little fun while you still can,” Patrick said.  “As a former confirmed bachelor, I recommend you enjoy”

“Last one,” AJ said.

“Yup.  In many ways.  Let’s go,” Patrick said slyly.

“Hotel bar means hotel room,” Jake said.

“Which means the party ain’t over,” Patrick said.

Annalese and AJ were celebrating their one year anniversary with Patrick, Jake and their wives when a woman shoves a baby at AJ.

“Here you take care of him.”

The New Guy

Chazz was always the new guy and he hated it.  Tonight would be different, but not really.  

He was new at being a brain eating zombie, but after tonight there’d be someone newer.


This Trifextra challenge this week was to use the picture and prompt as inspiration for our 33 word story.

You’ve found some old books.  On page 3 of one of the books, this illustration appears


Halloween is approaching.  The zombies are out, albeit a little early.  Even though they’re out early, you still have some time to check out some other Zombie writing Trifectans.
