On a dark and damp morning as I dotted away at the keyboard;
The rain pitter-pattered on the roof patiently waiting for lunch;
Until Sahara spied along the wall a spider feasting early;
Watching it snack on another spider gave me the shivers;
My office has an odor now, but is free of offending spiders.
FRIDAY FICTIONEERS: EVERY FRIDAY AUTHORS FROM AROUND THE WORLD GATHER TO SHARE THEIR 100-WORDS BASED ON THE PHOTO PROMPT HOSTED BY ROCHELLE WISOFF, OFFERING CONSTRUCTIVE CRIT AND ENCOURAGEMENT TO EACH OTHER. READERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO COMMENT AS WELL. HERE’S MY CONTRIBUTION…
The editors of Trifecta are tired. Hectic summer plans, last minute school shopping and prep for courses of our own have us drifting off in front of the computer. Any millisecond we can shave off of our busy schedules could potentially improve the quality of our lives as well as the lives of those around us. This weekend, we’re enlisting your help in shortening our considerably lengthy bedtime routines by giving us a children’s bedtime story in exactly 33 words. It can be an old favorite reimagined or a work that is entirely your own. We only ask that your story not leave our kids with visions of the boogie man dancing in their heads. These tired bones thank you in advance.
Okay, so the Trifextra challenge is asking us to tell the back story of a super hero this weekend. With Sailor Moon and her Sailor Scouts making a comeback to anime this summer I couldn’t resist telling of Queen Serenity sacrifice to send her daughter (also named Serenity) and the other Sailor Scouts to the future when the moon kingdom was distorted, thus leading to Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts. The original anime series spans 200 episodes, and is one of the longest-running magical girl anime series. So Awesome!
