Trifecta: Week Sixty-Four

Happy Monday, Trifectans!  We thoroughly enjoyed reading the quotes you curated this weekend and we added quite a few books to our to read list.  Hopefully you all had as much fun with it as we did.

We have a bit of a switcheroo this week.  We have two editors on two separate continents with many, many time zones in between and sometimes our personal lives collide with our schedule.  This week is one of those times so we will be announcing three sets of winners(somehow the threes always manage to find us) in the  Friday post - the winner of the glass, the winners of the weekend challenge and the winners of this prompt.  

Have a wonderful week and get your party hats ready for the post on Friday.


Please remember:
  • Your response must be between 33 and 333 words.
  • You must use the 3rd definition of the given word in your post.
  • The word itself needs to be included in your response.
  • You may not use a variation of the word; it needs to be exactly as stated above. 
  • Only one entry per writer.
  • Trifecta is open to everyone.  Please join us.

  2. The b of 2 is highlighted as well. Should it be considered this week?

    1. Nope, we always go with the third definition. It's kind of our thing:)

  3. Sorry I made a mistake. I think I'm a Trifectan (if I deserve to be) who happens to go astray all the time, but I used the word 'dwell' in the past tense. I've made the correction in this link http://aapatawaran.com/2013/02/12/the-suicide-bridge/. Hope not too late.

  4. Hopefully soon, I'll feel well enough to give a stab at this before it's too late for this week. Gotta hate the virus from Helle!

  5. Hi folks! Let me know if the are any issues linking up with the "Cobbie's Kid: Introducing Cheyenne" entry. We have a school blog that she has used to post her story. If there are any issues, I'll copy it into my blog for now and come up with a Plan B. But, hopefully, you'll be allowed access because I linked from the specific page she used. Anyway, let me know. It would be cool for her to receive some feedback from writers such as yourselves. :)

  8. Bsoist: Your site does not let me comment. I tried through Twitter, but nada. Anyway, great piece. I go through that mental conversation almost everyday!

  9. At the risk of spreading cheese on Trifecta, may I share with you a little something about Valentine's Day. Love is every day, but love is full of it, too much of it, especially on social media, that it could give you a toothache.

    Love to all Trifectans!

  11. Sorry I forgot my blog address at the end

    I Submitted my story on dwell. I looked for it today and it was removed. I was hoping some would read and comment on it. Boo Hoo and a friendly awe shucks.

    I am not trying win anymore but just finish the race even if I finish last like varsity track 100 yard dash. At least I in the race.

    Besides, the person who finished last in everything gets more attention than the many who placed first.

    The moral of the story is: Be consistant!

    You can still read it and all my entry's. Just go to my main blog. It has a menu to all myblogs. It is:

    1. It was removed??? I'm not sure how that could've happened. Did you maybe click the red X next to your link on accident? For us to remove a link, it's a fairly involved process which can't happen accidentally. I assure you it didn't happen on this end.

      Sorry your link didn't get read. That really stinks. Please email us if there are any problems in the future. We'd love for your stories to be a part of our collection.

  12. Sorry. I am 59 years old. You know how old dudes have to remove their hand from in front of their face to see it? (okay young dudes too)

    After I wrote you Shazam! It appeared as if by majic. With help that happens at the market too. It has 3 lovely complements I really needed we can get only in the Virtual Community. Thank you for doing your part to inhance our lives.
