Many thanks to those of you who took on the challenge of adding another thirty-three words to a previously-written piece. It was lovely to see Trifectans offering up their work for others to use, and it was interesting to see how each of you chose to extend your writing.
In first place this weekend is Matthew Lowe who chose to add on to thirty-three of Jester Queen's words. Taken separately, they're both great pieces. Put together, they're hilarious.
Once upon an Aesop, the starving fox jumped up and seized the grapes. They were not sour at all. Then she choked to death. The moral of the story is plain: fuck fables.
And then with a wave of his powerful writing tablet, Aesop cast down a plague upon the blasphemous writer from his seat on high. The moral of the story: don't fuck with Aesop.Second place goes to C.D. Tolliver who surprised us this weekend with some scatalogical humor. Just when you thought Trifecta was above that sort of thing. What can we say? It's well-written, and it's funny.
Third place goes to Thin Spiral Notebook, where Tara added another creepy thirty-three words to her already frightening Bogeyman. Check it out if you haven't already.
Thanks, also, to those kind Trifectans who left some feedback on last week's critique. We have a new one up this week, and I hope you'll join us in leaving some constructive criticism on this week's piece.
