{April 2, 2014}   Saying Goodbye to a Friend (with the help of Classic TV)

I would be remiss if I didn’t take a minute today to say goodbye to a friend. An entity really. If you’ve been reading ODNT for a while, you might remember the Trifecta writing challenges I used to participate in pretty regularly. Long story short, Trifecta is an obsessed-with-all-things-in-threes website run by a handful of literary aficionados in the hopes of inspiring ambitious, fledgling writers.

And inspire it did.

I’ve never seen a writing link-up with a larger, more constant and fiercely loyal following. There, I was introduced to scores of great people including (yep, you guessed it) my friend and frequent writing partner, Mel at AccordingToMags.com. Additionally, Trifecta also prompted me to write several slices of flash fiction of which I’m especially proud. Among them …

Oh, and if you’re looking for a new link-up…

Check out KetchupWithUs!

Hosted by fellow Trifectan Mel and myself on the 1st and 15th of every month, KetchupWithUs is always flexible and always fun. Stop by when you can. One of our link-ups might just be live right now.

So thanks for the inspiration and the great company, Trifecta. I wish you guys good luck in whatever your future endeavors may be. And now, while you ride off into the sunset, I’m going to play you out with one of the biggest closing themes of all time. In the (36, so close to your beloved 33) words of Carol Burnett …

I’m so glad we had this time together
Just to have a laugh, or sing a song
Seems we just get started and before you know it
Comes the time we have to say “So long”

well I adore Carol Burnett and that little ditty made me weepy.
thank goodness for Trifecta and all the friendships (like yours) it offered me. :)



Thanks, Kir. I always know you’ll appreciate my references. (Were we raised in the same house or something?)

I only knew for sure that Mel came from Trifecta. But I love that it brought me to you, too. And so many others. I’m just afraid to start listing them here as I’m certain I’ll forget someone. :-/
