It was the best of him;
where his thoughts once dwelt,
and his words were given life.
Boiled, down to the bones.
Awesome job on the 33 word challenge. I love it.Kathyhttp://gigglingtruckerswife.blogspot.com/
Hi Kathy, Thank you. It was fun to have a short challenge for a specific image, I enjoyed it :-)
I loved these sorts of prompts and exercises. It sharpens our writing skills. Nicely adapted.
Thank you Brenda. I really like them too. It is sometimes harder to make things short and concise. I saw some really creative adaptations though, that put my poor little words to shame! ;-)
So sad. I think things like that... Then I think, who will care after a couple more generations?Great work!
I have discovered there are some morbid likenesses between us... perhaps we ought to have a challenge that involves murder, mayhem, and mystery? ;-) Thank you Darlene!
Thanks for linking up to the weekend Trifecta Challenge. Your response hit me right in the gut--just last night I boiled chicken in a stew. The meat fell from the bones, and it's all I could think of when I read your response. Ugh. :-) Your writing is beautiful. I take issue with your response to Brenda's comment. Your talent is obvious. I hope to see you back on Monday for the weekday challenge.
Thank you for stopping by to read. I like the challenges that make me think a bit about them. It wakes the muse. I appreciate your encouragement, and will certainly be back for the weekday challenge:-)
It was the best of him...where thoughts once dwelt. Lovely.
Thank you Kelly, for taking the time.
