Trifecta Challenge – Week 56

Weekend Trifecta Challenge is as follows:

This weekend we are playing another type of word game with you.  Below are photos from the 33rd page of one of our very favorite books, Elizabeth Strout’s Olive Kitteridge.  What we want you to do is to scour the page (click to enlarge), choose 33 words, and reshape those words into a piece of your own.  Your piece does not have to tell an entire story.  We just want to see what you can do with this particular word bank.  Punctuation is up to you.  Use whatever you need, whether or not it appears in the photos.



Beneath the house

Bones hidden

Water, wind had touched her

Quietly, peering

He slowed

Discovering the child

He wrapped her…gentle and still

Sensation of relief

Panic then quiescence

Standing, umbrage gone

He returned

The Smoking Squirrel is my way of bringing happiness to the world. I firmly believe that laughter is the best medicine and sometimes we all need a negative-free zone. This is it. Enjoy!

      1. She won the Pulitzer for this book. But she’s only got a few published, so not too many folks know about her. If you’re ever looking for a good book to dive into, give this one a shot. It’s delicious.
