Beneath the Blanket

In the woods past the remnants of the house Kevin saw bones peering from beneath a blanket of pine needles and leaves. He discovered a bicycle near a tree. In panic he left…..

I really enjoyed this weeks prompt!  I could have written a whole story but only had 33 words.

This was written for Trifextra; Week Fifty-six

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.

  1. I liked the sense of “fright” you created in your piece-I could see Kevin as a young boy scurrying away at the frightening discovery!This cool piece holds the possibility of a longer story,i feel:-)Great job.
