Trifextra: The First Time I Saw

It’s been a while since I’ve actually done anything related to Trifecta. I was on Twitter a little bit ago and saw a few of the other people I follow back and they posted their little entries. This week its Trifextra and it was a little difficult for me. I’m a little rusty after taking some time off doing any counting of words. One thing that I wasn’t expecting to do was count not only the words in my story but also the syllables as well. So everything has to be a single syllable and I’ve got to say, this will probably one of the worst ones you will read, but at least I tried it out. They gave you the first few words and then you had to continue on and you should have 38 in all. You would think having a number like “38” would be a good thing. Eh, no, but thank God for the word count button on Microsoft Word or there would be no way in hell, I’d ever be able to do any of these at all. So I hope you enjoy it!

Trifextra: A Monster In The Tub

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done anything to do with Trifecta. This weekend’s challenge seemed pretty easy, until I had to get the words down. Thank god Microsoft has that “word count” button. It’s a big life saver for me. Anyways, before I go on, I wanted to explain where I got the idea about this. When I was a kid, if I was in the bathroom at all I would make friends around the bathroom. Imaginary friends, had little names for the window, the tub, the sink, the rags, etc. I was lonely and apparently bored. So when I read about this weekend’s challenge those lovely memories came back to me and I decided to pull the idea from that. I hope you enjoy this little story.
