Trifextra – Week Ninety-Seven – Near-Sighted Nightmare Date

It’s the Trifecta weekend challenge, where we writers of fiction are challenged to put together 33 words to tell a tale. This micro-fiction can be difficult, but is always fun. This weekend we’re asking you to add thirty of your own words to the following three words for a total of thirty-three.

Kaylin had dreamed of much more. Her first time with Devin was supposed to dazzle. But her myopic sight exiting the shower led her to trip and take a header on the basin.


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!
