Here we go with another Halloween themed Trifextra, number 91.
. Thirty years ago, Roald Dahl published the book Dirty Beasts, a collection of poems for children about weird and wonderful animals. The last poem, however, is called The Tummy Beast about a boy who thinks there’s someone living in his belly. Your Trifextra challenge is to write 33 words on a beast in an unusual place. No swamps or forests or caves, we really want you to take your beast out of its comfort zone. – See more at: http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/#sthash.MwIzO4Wm.dpuf
The Creature from the Black Lagoon stared at the city fountains. EPA do-gooders had drained his home. The search had been too long. He could smell himself. Clean water would have to do.
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.
Why won’t those lousy do-gooders think of the monsters?
Loved this-a very cool take-poor beast! 😉
ha… well at least no contamination for the poor little menace..
I liked the EPA do-gooders. Clever and fun!
Love what you did here. Took a classic and moved him out!
Nice! I’d think that a nice fountain in the city could be a sweet little retirement spot for the right Creature.
Haha…clean water would have to do. I like that!
Or tap water will make him feel right at home.
This is an excellent response to the prompt, Joe. Lots going on in those 33 words.
