Trifextra – Week Eighty-Two – Straw, Sticks and Bricks

The weekend Trifecta Prompt is posted and the poor editors are feeling the effects of a long summer. Consequently we are tasked with crafting a 33 word bedtime story that will not keep the children up screaming for their parents. This reminded me of a time when my son requested I tell the story of the Three Little Pigs every night at bedtime. During this period I was working some very long hours and getting up very early, so some nights I tried to slide by with an abbreviated version, although not quite as brief as the following. It never worked, as he knew it well enough to prompt me with the pieces I excluded.

Check out Trifextra Week Eighty-Two if you are interested.


Once upon a time three pigs moved out. Got their own places; built them of straw, stick and brick. Wolf came, puffed down straw and sticks, but not the bricks. Wolf went hungry.


I want to point you flash fiction writers to another option. It is Flash in the Pan, where you write short fiction 50-150 words respectively to words chosen and posted each week. 250 responses will be collected and published by Redmund Productions. You can check the details at the following link: Flash in the Pan.

About Joe Owens

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!
