Trifextra: Week Seventy-Three
Congratulations to the winners this week! I finally got around to a little reading. Trying to find to time write and read around an eighty hour work week is a challenge all on its own. I can't imagine how the guest judges manage it, as well as our esteemed editorial staff. So...
On to the new prompt. This weekend we're asking for 33 of your own words inspired by the idiom, third time's the charm. This familiar phrase may have an indeterminate origin, but its meaning is clear. Whether or not you include the phrase itself is up to you. Just make sure to use exactly 33 words. And, as usual, have fun with it! - See more at: http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/#sthash.gxgESHhl.dpuf
"Did ye not stake Michel L'Parre last year, Annie?"
"I did, Liam. After your attempt didn't take."
"Well, sweetling, sharpen yer iron an' I'll bring the garlic. Third time's the charm, they say"
