Trifecta Weekend Challenge: F Scott Fitzgerald Has an Emergency!

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.

“Oh good! Here come the guys with the sunlight! We can go swimming now!”

Until next time . . . I love you

  1. 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.
    I give this 2 great Gatsby thumbs up!!!!

  2. I LOVE the image of three burly men prying sunlight’s fingertips from the glass AND F. Scott’s emergency. Linda, you are clever and funny. Awesome picture, too!

    • 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!

  3. This is WONDERFUL!! You chose such a great piece and then stamped it with your Linda Vernon flair! Love it!

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
