This Weekend’s Trifecta Writing Challenge: Anne

This weekend’s Trifecta Writing Challenge is to retell our favorite book in 33 words.


There once was a girl named Anne Shirley

Whose hair was carrot-red curly

Went to live at Green Gables

And then switched the tables

And made them all love her quite purely

Until next time . . . I love you

    • Oh I guess Anne of Green Gables would be “had to read” if you’re a guy! I wish we would have gotten to read it,instead of Great Expectations which I think Dickens was overly optimistic when he titled it.

  1. I love that you chose to write it as a limerick! This was fun to read, which is exactly how I felt about the book. 🙂

  2. Thanks for linking up with Trifecta this weekend. A limerick? Seriously? Well, color me impressed. This is a great response to the prompt.

    Hope you’ll come back on Monday for our 33rd Challenge Celebration!

  3. A perfect poem! This makes me want to reread the book as well. I tried to get Tyler to rent the minseries and watch them with me but he can’t bring himself to do it!

    • Thanks honey. Well, I think Tyler would like it. Dad like it. And there was no science or golf or engineering it it at all. I think it really surprised him how much he enjoyed it! I think Tyler will like it too.

  4. You are probably right! He likes Pride & Prejudice and Mommy Dearest. His favorite line to yell is “Don’t F**k with me fellas!” I might just rent it this weekend. He can pretend to work while actually watching it.

  5. Excellent!– tho I don’t remember anybody switching tables. And I’m a little surprised you didn’t mention the Wizard or the Wicked Witch, and how Shirley Ann clicked her heels to get back to New Hampshire. Oh, well. Yup, great book… : P

  6. one of mt favorite books and series… read them all 🙂 Id say your limerick was a great summation (is that the right word?) Wait! yoU got third place? Yayyyyyy!!!! awesome.. ❤
