Trifextra – Week Seventy-Five – Benny’s Mail

Trifextra Week Seventy-Five is a free form prompt. Simple enough, just limit the entry to 33 words. This goes against every fiber of my being as I enjoy crafting long works, but then that is why I enjoy these challenges. It refines my skills in so many different directions. 


Benny clicked his e-mail.

“WHOA!” he shouted.

Sheila scrambled to his side, looking for another disaster to manage.

“What is it?”

“E-mail. Alpine Acres Publishing.”

“Open it!”

Benny scanned and then shrieked, “Finally!”

Can you tell from my writing I love God? I hope so because that is what I want you to know most about me. I am also a writer who loves taking on fiction prompts and crafting a story. One day you will read my work in print. Until then enjoy it here! For free!

    A moment we can all imagine only too well. Lucky Benny!

  8. Of course the theme is great 🙂 but my favourite line is: “Sheila scrambled to his side, looking for another disaster to manage.” Says so much about the character! Fun 33 words!
