Pitch dark woods,
sounds and movements
raising all hair
on my arms and neck.
My heart sprints
as my breath catches.
dare I run?
can you see me?
This is my first entry in the Trifecta Writing Challenge.
Each Friday, at 10:00 am Eastern Time a weekend challenge will be posted on our main page. Each week there will be a different challenge, with different rules. All challenges will be based, somehow, on the number three. This will be a lightening fast challenge that will close on Sunday at 8:00 PM Eastern Time. All entries will be read carefully by the editors. The top three entries will be mentioned on the following week’s Monday blog post, and the best-written response will be posted in its entirety on the site.
Here are the rules for Week 8:
“This weekend’s challenge is to write a story entitled ‘Lost’ in exactly 33 words. The word ‘lost’ can only appear in the title, not your 33 words. Any reference to the TV show could result in another visit to see the editors in the Trifecta offices.”
I don’t know where the Trifecta offices are located — but I’d rather not find out!! 😀
