Trifecta Writing Challenge...4...3...2...
Ashleigh was intent upon entering the Trifecta Writing Challenge - she never missed it - she knew she was going to be a writer after college, and this was great practice! In vain she tried once, twice, three times to log onto the internet...nothing! The router was always screwing up!
She called Richard and had him log on.
"Just tell me the word that I have to include in this week's entry!" she demanded, urgently. "I already have a hundred twenty five words written, but I always hit exactly three hundred and thirty three. Its kind of my thing."
"Sooo," Richard drawled. "You just need me to read you this one word, and that's it?"
"Yes!" screeched Ashleigh. "No! No, I need the definition too. And, please hurry. I have to submit it by 8:00!"
"How can you have the story partly written if I have not given you the main word yet?" asked Richard, clearly dragging out the time to his amusement and Ashleigh's despair.
"Because I am just that good!" she replied impatiently. "I could make it work even if you didn't give it to me until the very end. I'm on word number two hundred forty three right now."
"Well, that's very interesting," Richard answered, lazily. "The definition is: 'of inferior quality or worth - tawdry, sleazy."
"Two sixty five," muttered Ashleigh. "I still need time to copy this onto a jump drive and run it over to your house. So, what's the word? I only have forty words left to write."
"Well, it can also be 'contemptible because of lack of any fine, lofty, or redeeming qualities."
"Is the word 'Richard?'" asked Ashleigh. "Thirteen, twelve...."
"Sounds like you are getting down to the wire."
This post is for the Trifecta Writing Challenge! I'm new to it, and its addictive!
