This week’s Trifecta Writing Challenge is to take a beautiful piece of writing and “move it along” with our own 33 words. Well, OK, but it isn’t going to stay as pretty I’m afraid!
The last strains of sunlight lingered in the corners, grasping every available point of refraction. She slid her fingertips along the glass wondering if this was all there ever was. Or could be.
Suddenly three burly men thundered in.”We’ve come for the last strains of sunlight — F. Scott Fitzgerald is having a literary emergency!” And they began prying sunlight’s fingers from all available points of refraction.
Until next time . . . I love you

Great finish to the story. Love the burly men, the use of Fitzgerald and Fitzgerald’s emergency, the brusqueness of your words, and the prying of sunlight’s fingers. A lot of fun packed into so few words.

HA! Two Gatsby thumbs up! Thank you so much! 😀

Poor Zelda.She lost her F Scott, and then her sunlight.
Can’t wait til they start analyzing this F Scott Fitzgerald companion piece in grade school!
And I could travel around to schools reading The Great Gatsby. Then when the sun shines through the classroom window and I could break a mirror and when they all get up to look I could eat all the children’s lunches!
This is WONDERFUL!! You chose such a great piece and then stamped it with your Linda Vernon flair! Love it!

Don’t you just hate it when three burly men charge through your door on account of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s emergency? I know I do. 🙂
Ha. Does it happen to you often?
You know there are restraining orders…..
Oh, I know Michael. If we only had a nickle for every time that happened . . . 😀
